The Ambivalence of Tengu

Photo prompt, Scary Monsters on the March at the Perchant Pagan Festival in Germany by Philipp Guelland, provided by Grammar Ghoul Press.

Tengu are too hard to identify.
Are they birds or dogs,
humans, gods, or ghosts?

Where did their evolution
splinter?

Do they beckon war
with the torrent of their warped wings,
or is the torment tucked underneath their feathers?

Minor moment of plugging:

A flash fiction piece of mine entitled “A Murder of One” is currently available for free at freeze frame fiction. If you see this before/on Monday (10/19/15), consider swinging by Micro Bookends for their vote on this past quarter’s winners (I have a horse in that race, but only ask that any votes go toward the pieces that deserve them).

And don’t forget that Grammar Ghoul Press also has its own volume of The Ghouls’ Review out right now.
