To Jock Strap,
I'm sure you would "blow Raymond Carver away" with the thoughts in your
head. It sounds like you are a deep thinker. A real renaissance man.
Indeed, Kurt Cobain would fit that category too. What a philosopher! You
both are two of the finest poetic minds that the world has to offer. How
do you not get more respect? I say it's bullshit. You should be an award
winning novelist/poet/songwriter. You should get all the chicks. You are
clearly a winner in life. You deserve it. Because you are such an
Seriously. Get off Carver's nuts.

drinking and driving
saturday it's cold
someone will pay
someone will pay for where she lay
she lay in the darkness
she lay in the cold
where someday she will lie
millions of days old
not here to spend time with me
not here to laugh and cry
somebody is now asking themself
why why does she lie
she lies in this darkness
she lies in this cold
because she wan't reminded
nor was she told
not to drink and drive
or here she would lie
in this darkness in this cold
lying without me
eventually millions of days old
she would lie here by herself
with only comfort from me
now you see why
you don't drink and drive
or here you'll be

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.
