    Ron Koertge's book is DIARY COWS, not DAIRY COWS. Therein lies the delightful quirky humor of his title poem.
    See also his MAKING LOVE TO ROGET'S WIFE. He's a gem, one of a kind! ! !

    Such a wonderful and wry sense of humor. I could see why Billy Collins liked your poems.

The Streetsweeper

goes by at 1:00 a.m. two nights of the week. I can
hear the feather whoosh of his machine and see
one red light.

I believe that the streetsweeper lives alone,
sleeping
through the cold days, waking clear-eyed and deft
as the sun goes down.
