Bill Murray Reads Poetry at a Construction Site

Another great New York City moment. Last spring, construction workers building the new home for Poets House were treated to a short poetry reading by the actor Bill Murray. We initially encounter Murray reading lines from Billy Collins’ Another Reason I Don’t Keep a Gun in the House. Next up? Lorine Niedecker’s very pithy poem, Poets Work, and then, of course, a little Emily Dickinson.

    Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for info about this topic for ages and yours is the best I have came upon so far. But, what concerning the bottom line? Are you positive in regards to the source?|What i do not understood is actually how you are no longer really a lot more well-appreciated than you might be now. You’re very intelligent.
