When You Speak In Whispers - Poem by RIC BASTASA

when you speak
in whispers
to me

like some
kind
of vespers

like some
code
of the cicadas

i have
actually
second
thoughts
listeni ng

i am
afraid
i always
remember

the kind
of deaths
fit
for my
godfather

lots of
little deaths
and i
ask, which
one

which one
is the
happy death?
