"A Reasonable Thing To Ask" - Christopher Reid

Please explain tears.

They must have some purpose

that a Darwin or a Freud

would have understood.

 

Widowed, a man hears

music off the radio -

Handel - Cole Porter -

that sharply recalls her,

and they swamp up again.

 

A faculty that interferes

with seeing and speaking

and leaves him feeling weaker:

what does he gain by it?

 

What do we gain by it -

blind to the tiger's leap,

voiceless under the avalanche?

Somebody must know.
