Devil Child

evil eye amulets at Cargo in Portland, OR
Foot of the rabbit, evil eye
Moon birthed a daughter on the brink of July
Wear a horn and sign the cross
All your gold will turn to dross
Devil's child with angel's hair
Lock eyes and you best beware
She'll kiss you then she'll eat you whole
Leave your bones but take your soul.

I have to admit, I saw the same darkness in these-I don't think I'd want one hanging around my neck, though they have their own beauty, just like the devil child. Loved this and loved your challenge, LM--thanks.

Excellent portrait. I think she grew up to be my ex-wife.
