The code you posted is in the *language* clojure (note the j) a lispy language that runs on the java virtual machine. Clojure (j) is a completely different language than common lisp, not merely another implementation of common lisp.

Clozure Common lisp (note the z) is an implementation of the language common lisp.

This is why the code you posted won't run as is on clozure common lisp. You could translate it/port it, but that would require being familiar with both languages, common lisp and clojure. The algorithm you're looking for is simple enough that you'd be better off just implementing it directly in common lisp - assuming you want to use common lisp, not a lisp-like language that runs on the jvm.
