“At Night”
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 buttery,
The vampire moth - a choxana.


from Like Never & Like Always, released June 10, 2016
Arranged with additional music by Leslie Bonnett; “Nani, nani kush të tund,” new folklore lullaby, Albania; Romani lyrics from the poem “At Night” by Hedina Tahirovic Sijercic
