June rez Posted

read the June issue of rez in Issuu

Guns, guns, guns. Do we have enough guns yet? Are we safer if we introduce even more guns into our fractured society?  This is the backdrop for this month’s issue of rez, intended for the idle enjoyment of curious minds. The Chinese curse is “May you live in interesting times.” And for all the curses we feel in our bones, we have writers, poets and artists who summon a different message. And that message has never come forth stronger than in this month’s issue, bringing together some of our favorite writers and poets.  Cat Boccaccio?  Yes. Jullianna Juliesse? Annie Mesmeriser? Are you kidding me? Yes. Art Blue? Of course. Consuela Hypatia Caldwell and Zati Kodaly? Yes, again. Klannex Northmead? Thank God. Volodomyr Zelensky? Yes. This is our world to shape as we see fit. Shape it. Enjoy this month’s issue.

May rez Posted

 Read the May issue of rez in Issuu:

Spring has sprung in most parts of the Northern Hemisphere, so we can read this month’s issue sitting outdoors under a shade tree.  This month we have another fabulous lineup of poets and seers, our most gifted writers on the grid.  Starting things off is Rakshowes with her own charming tale, Maiden Fair.  What issue of rez would be complete without a treatise on art and life by Art Blue?  He doesn’t disappoint with First Meaningful Paint, containing his insights on art now and in the future.  RoseDrop (Rusty) Rust sizzles with an erotically-charged poem, Pre-knot.  Ignorence, by Dearstluv Writer, feels like a companion poem to her wonderful, Innocence.  Troubling and beautify at the same time.  Annie Mesmeriser’s not done with her gonzo tour of the world of puppetry, this time with the hilarious Drink Me! Ervare contributes his take on world affairs and the rise of despots with No Reason to Put In.  Cat Boccaccio, who understands that often less is more, gives us a stunning piece of short short fiction in Rosa.  Zati Kodaly, who dazzles us with every one of her works, rounds things off with her heady Portals.  That’s it for this month.  Enjoy the pretty words and pictures.
