On Looking into Riley’s Ovid

Much have I read in this kinda too-long tome
and really, what I keep thinking is:
Damn, these ancient gods
they really liked turning people into birds
…and trees
so I wonder
What Jungian race-lust does this reflect?
What does it say that we want so badly to fly
…and be still?
