To Raymond Carver

There is too much blue
in the world.

You taught us to mix
other colors into it.

Things are still very blue,
but now more interestingly so.

You taught us to stuff
our bathrobe pockets with notes

and to trust, to believe
they would fall out in useful places,

even if the place were dark
and love was a dream deferred.
