Love and Fuck Poems was born in July 2011. Koraly put together a red zine in the space of three months, just to have something to sell at her gigs. Little did she know it would keep selling. In July 2012 Koraly republished with Outside The Box Press as a Deluxe Edition book. The original zine is still circulating and will soon be phased out. It contains original drawings by Koraly.
