-poortown never really scrubs off, no matter how hard you want it to scrub off. of course, those of us with intelligence, who escape poortown for better things, can hide our background from others. but poortown is branded to the soul. i am a male from poortown. i will never be anything else, no matter what else i become aside from that. but this is not a bad thing. it's simply my identity.

-at the same time, i am no longer OF my poortown. poortown is not like a metropolitan city that can be alienated then embraced again at will. a new yorker can leave NYC and come back to NYC and be a 'new yorker' again. this is not how poortown works.

poortown is a small, continuous, shared experience, and when you leave, it's like cutting your patch from poortown's quiltwork. poortowners continue living without you, updating each other daily on their doings, fucking each other, marrying, divorcing, having families. a year of absence may as well be a decade. once you pluck yourself from this continuity of poortown experience, you by necessity become an outsider, moreso as time goes on.

now, if you move back permanently, you will eventually get filled back in on the transpirings of those lost years. but poortown cannot be taken on and off like a jacket. you're either in it or you begin to become an outsider.

i hope this helps you understand, a bit, the psychology of poortown, which is where i grew up.

Not going back to my poor town this year but I do enjoy following the various Facebook discussion groups relating to my poor town

A very good discourse recently about the prospects of a chipotle coming to town. One poaster speculated that chipotle was “not an eat-in restaurant” but rather was “a fast food buffet”
