Gallon jug thrown through branches
Of a tree lain across the beach
Eroding cliffs litter the trees
The jug is another thing.

The jug and some bottles, tennis ball cores
Styrofoam and butane lighters
Jetsam of waves, of Potomac tides
The litter of the capitol.

We clean it up, each April, each year
The trash of the nationís river
Jug thrown through branches
Leafing still for spring.

There were barrels of plastic filled with mud
We dug out and emptied and cleaned
Heaved on the skiff like a jug past a tree
A trophy of a beach cleaning.

Giant truck tires with iron rims
Crab traps, more than a few
Half a table of plastic composite
Handrails of aluminum.
