  2. The teaser for Glass Houses was released!

Sorry FIFA.

“На баба” – съвременна поезия от Северозапада (част III)

Вярвам, че някои творби имат нужда от представяне. Други, трябва да бъдат почувствани – онези, които говорят сами за себе си. Без излишни крилати фрази. Без преструвки и празни хвалебствия.

Такова е и третото произведение, подбрано от стихосбирката “Говори ми, любов” на Лия Валс.
