True Life Trio
I am going to leave the lamp on next to the cradle.
I am going to rub a garlic clove over the child’s breast.
I am going to put the broom behind the door.
I am going to pray to God.
To drive away the child’s crying,
To drive away the bloodsucking butterfly,
The vampire moth - a choxana.
