poetry on the street

next time you’re in san fran, check out the addison street poetry walk. along both sides of addison street (between shattuck avenue and milvia street), there are about 120 plates in the sidewalk – each containing a poem reflective of berkeley’s history in some way.

there’s a poem from richard (another shot here). the poem is ’30 cents, two transfers, love’:

thinking hard about you
i got onto the bus
and paid 30 cents fare
and asked the driver for
two transfers
before discovering that i
was alone.

and if you can’t get to san fran, there’s The Addison Street Anthology: Berkeley’s Poetry Walk book and photos of the plates on flickr.
