Bill Murray Reads Poetry to Manhattan Construction Workers

Last week Bill Murray visited the construction site for Poet’s House in Manhattan, reading some snappy poems for the bemused workers.

In the video embedded above, watch the actor read “Poet’s Work” by Lorine Niedecker and “I dwell in possibility” by Emily Dickinson–cracking jokes the whole time.

Here’s more from the site: “Members of the construction team which built Poets House’s new home join actor Bill Murray for the first poetry reading at 10 River Terrace.” (Via Edward Champion & Unbeige)
