"Doing Absolutely Nothing Since 1982."


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  

June 17, 2021

auteur:  (noun)  (pronounced:  oh-ter)  usually the director of a movie (but it can apply to other media) who has such influence over the outcome of the film that he or she is considered the "author."  Stanley Kubrick is seen as many as an auteur, especially when it comes to a movie like The Shining, which would've probably been just another silly Steven King movie if done by anybody else.

I've taken pictures
of everything I own.
It's so easy.
I use my telephone.

I've taken pictures
of everything I've ate,
and I make a note,
if it were good or great.

I've taken pictures
of everywhere I've been,
careful to catalogue
with whom and when.

I've taken pictures
of everyone I've ever met.
I have a list,
so I won't forget.

But every once in a while... I wonder
just what I've been taking these pictures for,
and how much differently life might've been
had I taken less pictures
and lived just a little bit more.
