280 Dog 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

wonk:  (noun)  often used derogatorily, a person who takes a particularly specialized interest in the minute details of a field of study, especially with politics.  You want to know about the influence of Russian immigrants on the passage of the infrastructure bill?  Then just ask Bill, he's our resident wonk.

"So I decided that If I couldn't be perfect, then I'd be vicious!"

Dear Mr. Collins,

I doubt if you remember me, but my name is Aaron Glass.  I had you for the second quarter of eighth grade about 15 years ago at Chadwick Junior High.  I was the skinny little kid who sat in the back and never talked.  I know that I only had you for a short amount of time, but I have never forgotten what you taught me.  In particular, I’ve never forgotten what you taught us all about nonconformity.  How living a life planned by others is not living at all.  The quote I remember the most is: “The ultimate goal of any man is that he is the one who makes the rules that govern his life.”  That truly affected me.  It is because of you that I was opened up to a whole new way of thinking, a whole new world of possibilities.  It was you that caused me to come out of my shell.  Because of you I decided to become my own man.  It is because of you that I chose the path less traveled, and, as the Poet says, “that has made all the difference.”  I just wanted you to know this before my execution.

Thank you for being my teacher,
