Driftwood Wrecked

There on the board, name impressed
– a donation,
symbol of civic pride, trampled
by nameless unshod feet,

over narrows and through
the sickly salty air.
In the wash, driftwood wrecked
– from Titanic?
more ordinary things find
themselves in the surf,
forgotten by trekkers
dodging back to parking lots
soaked by sudden storms.
