DESK PIANO 3
(Battiato e i chiodi di garofano)

Memories of zija Carmen
teaching me at the kunvent
in Gwardamanġa
Long tiled corridors
sun-yellow ceilings
the light incense of cakes
from the nuns’ kitchen
u r-riħa tal-imsiemer tal-qronfol
chiodi di garofano
cloves, that’s the word
Ah how sweet to be playing
this finger dance (…)
