Disposal of Rejection letters: Thank you for approaching us

I kept my rejection letters
hundreds of them
fat as a summer tree

colours
cards
slips
toilet roll

a three year old faerie
with sparkly wings
feeds them into the shredder
with a grin on her face

very selective
didn’t quite click
best of luck
sorry to disappoint
isn’t quite right for us
limited number of authors
unfortunately
not our sort of thing
thank you

“This is fun daddy.”

–Benjamin F Jones

About Graphite Bunny

I am a writer working in South Wales (UK). I love pizza, photography and moist clay. When it rains I catch drops in my open mouth. I create poetry, flash, absurdist snapshots and humorous fiction.

    This is pure greatness, Mr Bunny!

  2. Great poem. I especially like the stanza in italics; even though the words were shredded, we still know they were there.

  3. About a year ago, I killed my shredder by feeding it old typescripts 😉
    Very funny poem. Loved it.
