Mary-Louise Parker reads Josh Ritter’s “To the Dogs or Whoever”

As part of Disquieting Bedtime Stories, her video series for Esquire Magazine, Mary-Louise Parker reads, in full, the lyrics to Josh Ritter’s “To the Dogs or Whoever.”

I’ve already mentioned the important role this man’s music plays in my life. Given this spin, I am seeing his lyrics as poetry, born anew in a world where love haunts like a bird of prey, circling in the not-so-high above, waiting moments before desperation sets in to strike.
