Stop me if you've heard it.

Where had I heard this
one before? I couldn't
quite get a grip--the temperature
was dropping prematurely,
the lines were all fucked up--

I was used to falling by now,
failing by just this much, enough
to tell you about it, or her about it,
or whatever, I had it on the line
this time and dropped it,

                          now I'm telling you
that first thought it was an old joke,
one that rings inside your head,
not quite funny enough to
make you laugh, not quite sad
enough to make you cry.
