Holiday Issue rez Posted

Read the Holiday issue of rez in Issuu:

Temperatures are dropping. Beginning to tap winter wood. Which fuels the fireplace. Which warms the reading chair. And we have just the issue to finish out this inviting portrait.  We’re still trying to figure out Art Blue, but the more we hear from him, the more he’s making real sense. Two wonderful pieces this month, Killingfish, the Download and The Bossmang Dialogue: Fetch the Bold Cutters. He is, as the expression goes, the gift that keeps on giving. With Not A Book Review – A Window, Drover Mahogany brings a level of erudition to this issue, along with an elevating melodic, sublime quality. Zymony Guyot returns with a bitingly truthful poem, Check Digits.  We are so grateful to have the likes of Jullianna Juliesse be a regular at rez.  Ambiguous Loss is Julie’s latest jewel.  RoseDrop (Rusty) Rust cuts right to the ethical requirements in a lawless universe with Alternate Ethical Kink. Jullianna Juliesse contributes a bittersweet remembrance of lost innocence with Ambiguous Loss.  Cat Boccaccio’s Deadbolt  is upsetting in the best sense.  Persephone Phoenix brings this month’s issue to a brilliant close with her Monsters, a masterful piece of writing.  Tuck that blanket around your legs, have a sip of the warm holiday beverage, and enjoy our holiday issue.  Peace.

 After a blistering hot summer, we’re on the Autumn – for some their favorite time of year. We have just the thing for you this month. Jami Mills takes us inside Queen of the Nile pyramid on TerpsiCorps Isle, with all its mysteries, catacombs, visual and musical delights. Jullianna Juliesse delights us with one of her most powerful poems, Nothing Stands Between Me and the Flame. Merope Madrigal gives us a poignant and very strong poem, The Ugly Beautiful. The Blue Man in the Castle and Killingfish are both penned by the incomparable Art Blue, and each leaves us smarter and more confused than before. No Place for Secrets is a short piece by Cat Boccaccio takes us inside some timeless riddles. RoseDrop Rust’s Disclaimer is simply a joy. We end with The Grey Light of Dawn by Rakshowes, who charms us and challenges us at the same time. Enjoy the cooler weather. See you next month.
