Brian began writing plays in college and had several productions in Texas and New Mexico. He went on to study writing plays, screenplays, television and radio drama at the University of London. In 2010, Brian published his first poetry book, Pangaea: Transforming the Landscape (available now from Amazon.com). He has had publications in literary magazines including poetry quarterly and the Hoot & Hare Review vol. 1&2.

I seem to have more views on these posts than I expected, so here's one more.
I am published once more in Poetry Quarterly. Please check out the Spring 2014 issue. There is a link to it in the poetry section of my website: http://www.brianarmstrongwriter.com/#...

“All love is is two people being stupid together. ”
Brian Armstrong

“I never said that other one, about love being two people being stupid. I would never say anything like that. I don't know where that came from and I can't erase it.”
Brian Armstrong

“Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis when you became aware that the greatness of this being was breathing into you. Licking the sides and corners of your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again - the first kiss of the rest of your life. A kiss that confirms that the universe is aligned, that the world's greatest resource is love, and maybe even that God is a woman. With or without a belief in God, all kisses are metaphors decipherable by allocations of time, circumstance, and understanding”
Saul Williams, , said the shotgun to the head.

“Come, my love, we have oceans to sail.”
Saul Williams, , said the shotgun to the head.

“Talk to strangers
when the family fails and friends lead you astray
when Buddha laughs and Jesus weeps and it turns out God is gay.
'Cause angels and messiahs love can come in many forms:
in the hallways of your projects, or the fat girl in your dorm,
and when you finally take the time to see what they’re about
perhaps you find them lonely or their wisdom trips you out.”
Saul Williams

“At least I admit that I don't know. I know that things are fucked up, beyond belief, and I have nothing original to say about it.”
Eric Bogosian

“It's my duty as a human being to be pissed off”
Eric Bogosian, subUrbia
