   Lillooet

by Marthe Bijman

A tongue-twister of
lilies, lilts, largos, oohs,
exotic-sounding, an unlikely destination.
Perched on a bench above the river
like a call-girl all done up,
waiting on the porch,
calling out to passers-by.
Still flaunting her finery, her glory days,
fancy murals,
jade on plinths,
intricate porch brackets,
grandiose façades,
riotous flower gardens,
hippie post boxes,
A feisty little town,
a shabby haven,
welcoming us,
hoping we’ll see past its faded glamour.
