Haikus of Homelessness: Yonge & Eglinton

Two Haikus for Yonge & Eglinton

Yonge & Eglinton
I know it’s somehow safer
I feel afraid.

Shiny new condo
The concierge is greasy
I want to go home.

For more terrible poems and completely unrelated photos see "Haikus for the Annex" and "Haikus for Leslieville." Still to come: Haikus for Kensington and Haikus for Yonge & Bloor. (Does that neighbourhood have a name?)


  1. My neighbourhood has a bad rep. It's Yorkville/Rosedale. Not as cool as Parkdale - womp womp.

  2. I bet you can't wait until I write some bad-ass haikus about your humble little 'hood. They'll probably go something like this:

    I am so hungry.
    I want pie, cake, bread, jam, treats.
    Where is Melissa?

  3. Wow, I just found my new favourite blog!
