Book Review “The King of FU”, Benjamin Davis (illustration Nikita Klimov)

“Life is like a colonoscopy,” claims the author of the book ‘The King of FU’. What happens during colonoscopy, and how to prepare for the sacred action, are the main themes of this magical poem about the Kingdom in which we all live. It seems that Benjamin knows exactly what he is talking about.

A couple of words about Love…

Ok, I need more than a couple of words, but I’ll try to make it as short as possible. A new kind of Love – the Short WordPress Love.
