another

trans woman stabbed and killed. new orleans february twenty-seventeen. performer activist HUMAN. a mere headline. scraps of words. two photographs

another

body down.

mcelveen is the sixth reported transgender woman to be murdered this year 

this year began a month ago/it ended several times after that. with every

body down

is it not enough to resist the increasingly gendered world.

is it not enough to battle inflated social constructs.

is it not enough to want to exist.

television flashing names too fast for anyone to read. this is all script. operation

CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL.

let it be known. let the radios scream murder. let the papers flood with narrative. let us all

stand up

for every

body down.
