Over Until

It wasn’t over
until it was over
even then
we weren’t sure
didn’t want 
the fireworks to stop
didn’t want the sickness
to have a cure

flashbacks and echoes
and aftershocks
have us trying
to turn back clocks
but the memory of the triumph
will simply have to do
at least until the next time
enough to get us through.
