Like reading a poem about a dog while being accompanied by a man playing the cello. It is Bill Murray at his finest.

As Murray said before he started his performance, the poem is called “Dog,” and it was written by Lawrence Ferlinghetti and published in 1958. The poem discusses a dog’s perspective on politicians and freedom and how the dog’s reality is different than from the humans who tower above it.
And like the dog in the poem, everybody watching Murray saw reality, and the things we saw were bigger than ourselves.
