Louisa Campbell – "Finding Nico"


Finding Nico

Was it her, dancing on top of a hundred-foot pole,

calling the world to come up?


Was it her that married the stranger?

Was it her low that divorced him?


Each year she signs up to save the world; each year she drops

out, feeling the air pressing down like an anvil.


She cries. She laughs. She says,

My life is a party that nobody comes to.


Often, she feels like screaming;

sometimes she does –


it sounds like a fountain of glass.

She sees herself in the pieces,


the same way lost treasures are found

while searching for something else.
