Her Name is Rehtaeh Parsons

Her name was
[redacted], her parents [redacted]
and [redacted].

Her home was an city
by the ocean,
and she was
seventeen.

Stuck inside a chronological
kaleidoscope,
the legacy
known until men with hammers
chose to bury her a second time,

but none attending wore
black ties.

[redacted],
seventeen forever in
a city by the

Atlantic tides.

History as written by
winners; bound coffee table
editions embody the
weight of change.

Seventeen forever.

Someone just
say her name.
