the poem is titled 'news'.
there is a lot of bad 'news' that one would think would make people cry.
but there is a lot of it, and it never stops.
that would lead one to believe that people like it. like 'bad news'.
that they are addicted to it.
addicted to crying.
that their tears have become something they are dependent upon.
