What I learned growing up in Parkdale
Emily Pohl-Weary

The cars never stop for pedestrians
Kids should buy cigarettes in ones, it’s cheaper
Lake Ontario was once clean enough to swim in
Cadillacs invariably carry pimps
You can’t find parking on Sundays
Never trust Others
Pick your nose when a pusher approaches
If you steal you’ll get beat to a pulp
The cops only make you bleed worse
Guardian Angels are worse than cops
Hookers earn a decent living, until the pimp gets tired
Old women always live alone
Boys trick you into giving them blowjobs
Resident’s Associations hassle all single women
The guy who owns the grocery store kicks his staff
My baby-sitter turns tricks
After dark, every car carries one man
Hide-and-seek is too dangerous to play
People can survive anything
