I mille nomi di dio

“Hai una sigaretta alla marijuana” mi chiese Vivida mentre eravamo stesi sulla sdraio sotto il sole cocente, il giorno dopo.

“Marijuana? Cosa sarebbe?”

E Vivida rispose: “Sai… Marihuana… Kunubu, Kannapu Cannabis, Kannabis, Konnab, Kinab, Kon-nab, Kannab, Kanub, Kinnab, Quinnab, Konneb, Quennab, Quinnab, Kenneb, Alcanque, Kannabis, Kinnub, Kannab, Kanob, Kanaq, Ranob, Canapa, Canep, Konopj, Konople, Konopli, Kanoplia, Canapa, Canna, Cannone, Cannappa, Canamo, Canhamo, Canamazzo, Cylum, Cilotto, Kanas, Kas, Hen-neb, Hennab, Hennip, Hennup, Hampa, Hamp, Kamp, Kemp, Hemp, Hand, Cannabis indica, Cannabis sativa, Kandir, Bhanga, Bangue, Banga, Bhang, Bhanga, Banga, Bang, Beng, Benghin, Benj, Bendj, Ganja, Ganjica, Gangika, Ganga, Ginji, Ginjeh, Guinnjeh, Gindsche, Gunjag, Guaza, Hashischa, Hasheesh, Hashish, Hachache, Hachaichi, Hadschi, Azallu, Subjee, Shesh, Assis, Axis, Assyuni, Asarath, Nasha, Anascha, Asa, Dakka, Dakha, Dacha, Dakka, Dakkan, Dagga, Djamba, Diamba, Jamba, Riamba, Damba, Kanedir, Kanabira, Kendir, Kender, Kennevir, Kenevir, Kentyr, Butt, Cadaneh, Cansjava, Chanvre, Chenevis, Chutsao, Chu-Tsao, Chu-Tso, Huruni, Indrasanas, Jia, Intsangu, Keff, Kif, Kief, Kinif, Kerp, Kharaneq, Sharaneq, Shanareq, Sjarank, Sheera, Ma, Ma-yo, Ta-ba, Si-ma, Tse-ma, Maguen, El Mogen, Malach, Mosjusk, Masconha, Marijuana, Mariguana, Marajuana, Matakwame, Mnoana, Mutokwana, Opishnu, Penek, Pienka, Penha, Rongoyne, Sejaf, Ahetsmangha, Fasukh, Vijaya, Teriaki, Tekrowia, Takrousi, Taktut, Takruri, Takrouri, Rekrouri, Assis, Berch, Bernavi, Bernaouy, Bers, Bosa, Chara, Chiras, Churus, Churrus, Chira, Marihuana, Pura, Gard, Rup, Taghalim, Ganja, Gabza, Momea, Shahjehani, Mashak, Bhara, Dust, Chastry, Chatzraki, Chinty, Dawamesc, Wawamesck, Kawamesc, Diamoschum, Diamush, Diamesch, Diamesk, Dyasmouck, Esrar, Estratto di canapa, Coppa di smeraldo di Haider, Garawisch, Hachich-Kafour, Hachich, Hafiou, Hafioun, Olio di Hashish, Hashish cotto, Maju, Majum, Tadhal, Majoon, Madjoon, Majoom, Madjun, Madjoun, Masgi-oun, Majoan, Mapuchari, Mapouch-ari, Mapouchair, Maslac, Nasha, Ma’agoun, Manzoul, Manjoun, Haloua, Masmoch, Malak, Maraguango, Juanita, Dona, Juanita, Maria Johanna, Rosa Maria, Nabutal, Qunnab, Siddhi, Subji, Patti, Ganje-kuper, Gur, Siddhi, Sabzi, Phulganja, Savia, Sakhu, Sidhi, Sabza, Thandai, Siddhi, Sabzi, Spinello, Spino, Subzee, Daraktebang, Darakhte-Kinnab, Darakte-Bang, Nabatul-Qunnab, Muggles, Mooter, Reefers, Greefa, Griffo, Mary Warner, Mary Weaver, Mary Jane, Fieno indiano, Erba loco, Erba dell’amore, Fumo della gioia, Fumo delle risate, Bambalacha, Mohasky, Mu, Moocah, Weed, Tè, Ea-tay, Eed-Way, Eed-Waggles.”

“No” risposi.

“Allora immagino che dovremo farne a meno” decise lei. (Fu così che imparai che Vivida si faceva le canne)
