At a Cottage in a Wireless Dead Zone

Should either learn to keep
my mouth shut or give
it glorious nova-bright flares. You
would burn the transcripts of all our precious

late nights in this bedroom, in that attic.
Would we be better off?
If a lacework of fir trees and light
brings on nostalgia like this,

then I should have stayed in the city,
a fermata of please. Could, really.
Rather than standing here, tethered
to a dark cloud of roaming data

and this new kind of mean.
