The Viaduct Girls

in high waisted acid 
washed jeans & Def Leppard 
half shirts  

the viaduct girls 
give furious  
fleeting hand jobs 

as the D&H railroad 
shoots its load 
across the Susquehanna

later they teach us to skip rocks
ducks & drakes, they call it 
to further mystify 

in a few years 
they’re at Vassar or Bryn Mawr
or some other college we can’t pronounce

we stay or leave 
or leave & come back 
it’s all the same

drinking beer every night
at the Copper Fox
on Water St

nowadays nobody skips rocks 
& the train stopped unloading 
years ago
