Missing Women

"This poem is dedicated to the women who have gone missing from history and from their own lives."
"I began writing this poem is 2011 and I suspect I have not yet finished. It has been revised several times, most importantly to include the addition of the back half of the poem, where a handful of women and girls in Canada who died by suicide or murder are named. There are so many more whose names and stories we do not know."
