my gifs of fail

When kids who have never been allowed to struggle with anything ever enter my classroom and hate me for challenging them.


see, in this story,
he heard Penelope was dead.

Odysseus untethered, unmoored -
he throws himself into storms
like he might match their fury,
like he might find her there,
the calm at their centre.
yet their centres stay empty
and he sails on -
sticks his oar in the salt
and fucking dares it to drown him.

see? there is no peaceful way to end this.
