Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"I knew a woman once
She never spoke much
When she did
It was to say
That her love -
Was just a nuke away"


In Brendan S Bigney's Atomic Kiss, we are introduced to a collection of poems about struggle, heartbreak, and abuse, to name a few themes. We are taken on an emotional journey through prose and poetry with his short yet effective pieces that speak of trials and distress. The Nuclear Cowboy introduces us to hard-hitting experiences with his witty play on words that will leave an impact upon finishing. I thought Atomic Kiss was a beautiful collection of poems. The collection is so diverse in subject matter that there is at least one poem that a reader could find themselves relating to.

I enjoyed reading Atomic Kiss. It's a collection that many people can relate to. I always love it when a writer can blow a person's mind and leave them in awe with a short poem. Bigney has done this many times in this collection. A few of my favorites are When At Last They Meet, Projection, Distractions, The Killing Of Happiness, and Misgrowth. I can relate to these poems on a deeper level. The words have been something that I have struggled to define, and yet these poems seem to say it all. Overall, Brendan S Bigney has done a wonderful job in writing such a powerful and real collection of poetry that really grabs the reader's attention. Atomic Kiss is definitely a book I will be recommending to friends. I will also be on the lookout for more of his work.

- Tiffany Ferrell for Readers' Favorite

Atomic Kiss by Brendan S Bigney is a collection of entertaining and insightful free-verse poems. The poem "The People that We Meet" opens the collection. It examines the many people one meets in a lifetime and encourages appreciating those among them who turn out to be special. "You Won't Ever Rise" is a poem that lauds determination even when faced with constant failure. Another poem, "Misgrowth," explores a situation in which a person confuses the process of growth with forcing another person to change. While some poems carry romantic themes, the collection also contains other poems whose messages are diverse. Some poems are brief, only consisting of a few lines, while others are longer. The brief poems are entertaining and surprising while longer ones mostly explore deeper topics.

In Atomic Kiss, similes such as "like a sweet sweet drip" and "like mothers searching for the first pictures of their babies" create distinct images of the lines in the poems where they appear. I liked that the poems explore different topics that make them captivating and unpredictable when moving from one poem to another. "AI > Human," a poem about artificial intelligence is followed by "Abuses Many," a brief poem about the abuses of humankind. Inanimate objects and elements are personified in the collection which gives them a lifelike appearance such as in the poem "Even the Rain is Mad," which consists of the lines: "The rain is like a heart/ Beating itself into the ground/ Until at last/ Its beat ceases to be." Atomic Kiss is an absorbing, straightforward collection of poems.

- Edith Wairimu for Readers' Favorite

"...a collection of thought-provoking poetry that uses striking prose to create stimulating literature that speaks on a wide variety of topics relating to emotion and the human experience.

My favorite poem from the collection is 'AI > Human'...

'and it will create work that will rival that of any human
because it will have learned imperfection' "
