"Doing Absolutely Nothing For Almost 40 Years."


The Holy Grail Press is dedicated to promoting work that standard publishers... you know, those with standards, might be reluctant to publish, which pretty much leaves poetry.  And let's face it:  No one publishes poetry.  So in the end, we’re left with a lot of free time.



Word of the Every So Often  

November 26, 2021

dissemble:  (verb)  to conceal one's true motives, feelings, or beliefs; to be less than truthful or forthcoming.  When working for a boss who is just a bit too nosey, it's often necessary to be somewhat dissembling when it comes to things like which church you attend on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and the occasional Thursday.

Lunatic Monologue

One Kiss


Carla?  Carla Vanderholt?  I guess it’s not Vanderholt anymore.  Hi.  Remember me?  I’m Robert Throckmorton.  I used to go by Bob.  Bobby?  We made out once.  Remember?  It was in Davey Martin’s basement.  You were visiting your cousin, Cindy.  Remember?  It was June 4, 1972.  We were playing Truth or Dare, and they dared you to kiss me.  And you did.  But then you had to leave.  And you went back home.  And then your dad got relocated and you had to move.  I’ve been trying to find you ever since.  I know it was only one kiss, but it was more than that.  I felt something.  I think you did too.  Can I come in?
