all you can eat
in a world of meat

I’m teaching the oddest myth syllabus next term. Looks nothing like my usual (well, only a little like my usual). This will be my … fourth term teaching in my life, and I already need to shake things up.

"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"

In the suburbs west of Boston, an old manor house sprawls amid the falling leaves. This is the Non Victa Institute, a halfway house for those who live half in shadow already, for the boy with the Midas touch and the woman who’s been slowly growing wings since college. They come from all over the world to be cured of their strange ailments - fiery footprints, a fatal kiss, a complete inability to tell lies.
Rumor has it that the Institute can cure any affliction, no matter how strange. But the Non Victa Institute isn’t quite the safehouse it’s made out to be. The house is shrouded in secrets, the cellar is kept locked and barred, and the old man who owns the Institute has never shown his face …

"

Here are the women with ancient
anger in their veins and the cruelty
of a goddess in their hearts.

You will beg before her, you
will scream; but Hera never flinched
from the words of a mortal,

so why should she?

Do not stand in her way.

She will burn down your kingdoms,
herself with it, if it meant
your ruin.

"

Medea /// (d.s)

"It starts with bloodshed, always bloodshed, always the same
running from something larger than yourself story,
shoving money into the jaws of a suitcase, cutting your hair
with a steak knife at a rest stop,
and you’re off, you’re on the run, a fugitive driving away from
something shameful and half-remembered."
