"Deeds cannot dream what dreams can do."
I specifically remember watching this interview he had with Lawrence Fishburne, where the actor felt like he was in a comfortable enough environment to recite the inter-linguistic e.e. cummings poem, Freedom is a Breakfast Food. This is the type of setting that Craig Ferguson's show was able to foster. You won't typically see the highest form of poetry being expertly recited by an A-level actor on cable television—and it is this nocturnal, laissez-faire overtone that allowed for liberating interviews, such as this one, to happen. Enjoy a last look at the laid-back platform that allowed these living words of e.e. cummings to re-flourish.
worms are the words but joy’s the voice
down shall go which and up come who
breasts will be breasts thighs will be thighs
deeds cannot dream what dreams can do
—time is a tree(this life one leaf)
but love is the sky and i am for you
just so long and long enough
