I met God at a party once
at Eric’s place
                                               You know,  that guy with the horse tattoo
who wore jackboots everywhere

Eric had a keg of beer
there was a band called  The Locusts
they were playing “Louie Louie”
my dress was red and my hair was piled up high
and God flirted with me
in a room as white as science

he gave me honey and a needle
in sweet pink clouds I kissed him

he told me he'd been waiting for this moment
                                           all his life 
I said:  All your life and he said well, both 

The Locusts ended with “Sweet Jane”
the way the Cowboy Junkies do it

I was young and so naive
and though he promised he would call
                                           I haven't talked to God since
that night at Eric's place
when my white soul first 
kissed the mouth
of sin.
                                         I miss Him
