Begin simply -
place a plunger
on the end of a trumpet
to quell the sound.
One by one, the players 

forget the importance of big. 

Soon, all books are banned
bras reluctantly put back on.
Rosa goes to the back of the bus.
Little by little, everything turns
back in on itself until we are all
at the place we fought so hard
not to be.

We sit in the dark
left reading nothng -
and wonder who 

struck the first match.
