On the sign:
CUPS #5

The intensities
of these branches
of willow
open.

What is it
broke the skin?

How lovely
that jewel
of under the skin.

Neither dark nor light
is my true love.

The blood whose beauty crosses
the hand like money
will fight for that true love.

--Robin Blaser

Comments:
Berklee’s poetry Walk was laid in October 2003 along Edison Street between Shattuck and Milvia Streets. The route includes 128 metal plates with excerpts from songs, each of which is related in one way or another to the city of Berkeley.

The plaque features a poem by the American poet and writer Robin Blaser (1925-2009) who was in Berkeley and belonged to the San Francisco Renaissance group.
