Award-Winning Author, split by fission, plagued by fusion, living with creative demons... Brendan S Bigney writes poetry for the non-poets.

Writing in a storm of fire, he summons fictional imagery of Chaos and Order with the touch of the Atomic Kiss. Mix it with hard reality, and you get mind-altering and empowering poetry that hits you where it matters.

Before living out the remainder of his half-life, he was a Quest Giver in the Marine Corps where operations was his practiced art form. He never slept, rarely smiled, and mumbled with the muses. He enjoys a good dose of CS and is always working on a combination of words left unused.

Marines called him The Nuclear Cowboy.

He can be followed on instagram (the_nuclearcowboy).

“There are no heroes
Only those that accomplish incredible feats
Under incredible amounts of pressure”
Brendan Bigney, War What Comes After

“The donut dunked herself in coffee
But burnt herself in the process
And despite the scars she bore
She was delicious anyways”
Brendan Bigney, Atomic Kiss

“Bite the dog too often
And you will tear it apart
Before it even has the chance to rise
Yet be too kind
And it will forget that it was bred for war
It will die in the killing fields
Everything you do must be with purpose and reason
All decisions must be made without emotion
With respect to the mission
And the currency of lives”
Brendan Bigney, War What Comes After

Brendan Bigney, Atomic Kiss

“I knew a woman once
She never spoke much
When she did
It was to say
That her love was just a nuke away”
Brendan Bigney, Atomic Kiss

“There are no heroes
Only those that accomplish incredible feats
Under incredible amounts of pressure”

“Failure to change is stubborn
Change for the sake of change
Is an identity crisis”
Brendan Bigney, Atomic Kiss
