September rez Posted

Read the September issue of rez in Issuu:

Only a few more weeks of summer reading is possible as we either cook in sweltering heat, or drown in torrential downpours, but thankfully we have a new issue of rez to help us through.  Jami Mills starts us off with a photographic tour of Temple of the Divine Feminine, an art installation on SLEA2 dedicated to the feminine. Kisma K. Stepananich-Reiding (fka JulietteSurrealDreaming) pulls together a fantastical collection of fine art, educational programs, lecture halls, dance/meditation space, all to celebrate and lift women. Drover Mahogany contributes a fabulous poem entitled No Recourse, a powerful piece beautifully conceived. Our very own bebop poet, Zymony Guyot, delivers an astonishingly good musically inspired piece called Wizard of Loop. No issue would be complete without an article by Art Blue, who stands in the Hall of Minds and tries to describe the sounds he hears. Good Enough is this month’s selection by our less-is-more writer, Cat Boccaccio. A short snapshot into a day in the life of a young couple asking all the right questions. Aorist Chunes enchants with her poem Sailing Gibraltar and no one does it better than RoseDrop Rust, his selection this month being Vacuum of the Heart. Wonderful writing start to finish.  Enjoy the bounty!

August rez Posted

Read the August issue of rez in Issuu:

There’s not that much more reading one can do before the end of Summer.  So let’s get right to it.  The incomparable Art Blue starts us off with MathArt.ICU, a searing tribute to his friend, the late artist and visionary Herbert Franke. We’re grateful to include the wow quality of Zymony Guyot with Deadline Daddy, a tale of timemonkeys and nickscars.  So enamored we were with the imaginative extravaganza Le Cirque de Nuit that we’re reprinting Jami Mills’s review of Idle Rogue’s 2016 performance. RoseDrop Rust dusts off his classic texts, long lost between his bookends, with What They’re Doing Here.  We love Dearstluv Writer’s poetry and she shines with I Am Who I Think I Am.  Oh, Bucket, by Cat Boccaccio, is another wonderful example of her choice morsels of mood and word. We bathe in the soothing images that Consuela Hypatia Caldwell evokes in The Bird.  And that about wraps things up for this issue.  Be safe and jubilant.

July rez Posted

Read the July issue of rez in Issuu:

Now that the summer reading season is in full swing, we’re grateful for our stable of brilliant writers and poets who keep us focused and entertained. First up this month is our cherished Art Blue, who has regaled us over the years with his take on computers, AI, and quirky futuristic excursions.  Mr. Blue is in fine form with The Art of Blablabla, wherein he takes up the case of the notorious Blablabla1234565. Klannex Northmead takes us on a journey through his mind in Playing I Spy, comparing the colors of photons and water. From the compilation of prose, poetry and audio/visual materials by the same name (found on his website), Chris Mooney-Singh enlightens us with tales of rituals and prosperity in Love Knot Tantra. With Metamorphosis, Jullianna Juliesse contributes a dark poem harkening back to Franz Kafka’s classic novel. Zati Kodaly’s descriptive style is at its peak with No Paintings I Can’t Judge weighing the departures and arrivals in our lives. With Survival, Cat Boccaccio goes long this month, stretching her usual micro-fiction all the way to an engaging and haunting short-short story. Extinction Global2 is next from the pen of Art Blue. Who will be the last species to inhabit an unraveling world? Finally, RoseDrop Rust takes on the far-right extremists in Domestic Terrorist in Court, and if you know Rusty very well, it doesn’t go well for them.  Pull up a chair under a nice shade tree and get on with your summer reading.  More to come next month.
