As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Weep searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "weep box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "weep 2.box" for the latter.

Weep can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Weep does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Weep displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "weep forlornly", "weep bitterly,", and so on. You can also "weep 18373649" or "weep toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
