With the arrival of Memorial Day and our remembrance of fallen heroes, we reflect on their sacrifice to preserve the precious freedoms we enjoy. And what better environment is there in which to create? Great writing and beautiful imagery have been the hallmark of rez Magazine since its inception in 2012. The June issue is no exception. Ervare starts us off with Gregorovich: A Trip into the Afterlife. Apparently, Evare couldn’t wait until his own death to explore the afterlife. Dearstluv Writer pens one of her most thought-provoking poems yet, with Stand By ME. In the fourth and final installment of A Blues Tale: Austin SXSW, Annie Mesmeriser treats us to her look into the lives of professional musicians, the likes of which we’d never know without her wonderful recollections. RoseDrop Rust searches high and low in Heaven and Hell and leaves us breathless. Jami Mills is up next with Chapter Four of her Wishbone series, Wishbone One: The Grace of God, containing an unexpected plot twist that leaves the Mars mission in turmoil. Jullianna Juliesse contributes The Eye Like a Strange Balloon Mounts Toward Infinity, a soaring poem rich with imagery. NeganzLucille is new to our pages and makes quite a splash with his superlative poem, Buddha Smiles. We hope to hear more from this wonderful poet in the future. Cat Boccaccio, who says more with less, adds VEEP, a charming tale of competition in the White House. Art Blue is busy this month, bringing us Login Failed (A True Story). Knowing Art as we do, just how sure are we that this story is actually true? You have to read it to find out. And lastly, Julia Hatch closes out this month’s issue with Token Economy, a simply wonderful poem telling of the trade of people’s lives. Enjoy!
