Adrienne is right on the money. Tommy, you must look deeper.

Please look beyond your predjudice to the obvious connotation of the title,
and what it may imply... if you truly take into account the image that is
being conjured, you could actually find something quite beautiful. Even
the word "nevertheless"... think about it... "contrary" to the world
around us, "contrary" to whatever shortcomings we perceive, the character
perceives, he is relishing in the moment. I believe that, more than
anything, Carver is making reference to the freedom of living in the
moment, despite what tomorrow might bring. Quite lovely, with silence in a
certain chaos, if you ask me..

This is the last thing the world needs - a depressing reminder of nihilism
and emptiness. This poem is without the descriptive beauty and force of
RC's short stories, which provide in their truth and economy their own
answers and give a sense of the soul of the characters involved.
