read the February issue of rez in Issuu:
It is with deep sadness that we dedicate this issue to
the memory of Enola em Vaher, who devoted her life to the arts, both as an
extraordinary poetess in her own right and as a patron supporter, breathing
life into the Chelsea Hotel and all of its art exhibits and poetry readings.
She will be missed. So it is fitting that we start with one of enola’s poems, Hope Bleeds, which we now read in a
different light. Cybele Moon contributes Tales
of the Caravanserai, a wonderful parable which she illustrated herself.
Game Cat VR gives us a tutorial about a new way of reading in the digital age
in Capture This. Our cub reporter,
Barbie Starr, was looking for a subject related to the heart (February is
American Heart Month), and settled on the Mayo Clinic and all it does to
promote good health inworld and elsewhere. Her piece The Mayo Clinic Has Your Heart (Back) is informative and continues
her work of supporting nonprofits in Second Life. Art Blue immerses himself in
twin tales, EX dot G and The Afterlife, where he takes us into
the world of printed hearts and Pong. Cat Boccaccio is well known for her
micro-fiction and she contributes another fine example in Conquer. Eta Goldsmith joins our pages with an ode to a city dear
to her heart in My Florence. Trinana
Peach gives us another of her lovely poems, Home
from the Sea, about an expectant bride, praying for the return of her
sailor. RoseDrop Rust is never at a loss for words, and his Decadent Dream proves just that as he
delves into exotic Berlin. And finally, Drover Mahogany closes our issue with a
heartfelt poem of love lost.
