No Endings—Or, Red Fences

She turns off
movies just before

the last scene, closes
books and shuts off
the light with five pages

left to read. She forgets
the definition of closure—
still talks to exes alive

or dead. Never
celebrates New Year’s Eve
where anyone can see her. Stops

writing a poem without completing
the arc
