[R-sig-Geo] using spatialpolygonsdataframe in ppm (or, converting spatialpolygonsdataframe to pixel image or other object useful in ppm)

What is the best way to use a spatialpolygonsdataframe, with a numerical
variable of interest for each polygon (proportion of households in
poverty for US census tracts in the region of interest) as a predictor
in ppm() in spatstat?  I don't think I can use it directly on the RHS of
ppm(), because spatialpolygonsdataframe is not listed in the help file
for ppm() as an acceptable predictor.  So is there a way to convert the
census tract spatialpolygonsdataframe to an acceptable input object for
ppm(), such as a pixel image with each pixel having the numerical value
of poverty in its census tract polygon?

Or is there a better way to proceed?

Thank you.  Below is my sessionInfo
