Quotes by Brian Turner  (?)

“Open the hurt locker and see what there is of knives and teeth.

Open the hurt locker and learn how rough men come hunting for souls. ”
Brian Turner

“It should make you shake and sweat,
nightmare you, strand you in the desert
of irrevocable desolation, the consequences
seared into the vein, no matter what adrenaline
feeds the muscle its courage, no matter
what god shines down on you, no matter
what crackling pain and anger
you carry in your fists, my friend,
it should break your heart to kill.”
Brian Turner

“each twist of the round
spun deeper, because here, Bullet,
here is where the world ends, every time.”
Brian Turner
