The past tense of “have” is “ache.”
Used in a sentence: “I have a people,
we are strong;” becomes “there is an ache where family
should be.”

The limitation in the combinations of words becomes
a symbol of language’s failings:
in the communication of
magnitude nothing we could say
will ever be big
enough. There will never
be enough words
for 6 million,
the closest we have is
“Never again.”
