Selected Works, Koss


Black and White and Red, a Thing for Emily Dickinson

In Australia, Magpies spurn their monochrome.

With sonar-red eyes lit, they pick their victims.

Pedestrians, take care, don’t be joyful or too swift;

Bicyclists beware of where you pedal.

A white beak might reap a trophy eye

as Emily’s hope streaks laughing ‘cross the sky.

Wuthering Heights Pieces


Hare & Magpie


Magpie & Bag
