What it means

I write a sentence that
goes something like
… the obvious signs
like massacres, bombings,
kidnappings, extorsions…

– and I‘m tempted to end it with
etc.

but realize:

How on earth are words
even remotely reflecting

What that means?

There‘s no way to convey
the meaning of a
massacre
through the word
massacre.

And that clearly is
the preferable solution.

Nevertheless,
and I guess, this is
somehow
the heart of the matter
for me:

I must tell you about it,
about the massacres.
Worse maybe:
I must let you know
what it means.
