Bill Murray Reads Emily Dickinson To Construction Workers (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We're not sure what to say about this video of Bill Murray reading poetry to Manhattan construction workers. The actor stopped by during the construction of the new location for New York's Poets House to read some Dickinson and other selected poems to the men working on the site. Worth watching for Murray's jokes about short attention spans and undocumented immigrants, if not for the bizarre but moving juxtaposition of poetry and and construction.
