Hey Brian,

Perhaps my last letter didn't emphasize the severity of the letter situation. [Obvectively], yes, Im sure there are different ways of looking at the circumstance for what it may or may not be, But I've never seen or experienced anything like it. It was as if I wrote 'myself' a letter with the sole intention of belittling... 'myself.'

Certainly, I'm already good enough at doing that in my own mind, I don't need my own voice like- also assaulting me by arriving in the mail too; let alone from someone else playing at my level by utilizing my methods. It's like I sent her something 'I' had written with the intention of her copying it in her own hand to send back. 

Seriously, thats how similar it seemed. 

What kind of person takes the time to emulate someone else's writing just so'se to stir things up and-

Okay, I might be able to see myself doing something similar- but I certainly wouldn't do what I previously mentioned. Just try to imagine the amount of time a person would need to have on their hands to write out a letter for that purpose. And what is the purpose? You certainly wouldn't want to load it with material that belittles you would you? Even Bill Cosby's Debbie Downer 'Grover Henson Feels Forgotten' release wasn't so dismal to be about a guy sending himself hate mail.

How ridiculous would that be? Thats a whole new level of narcissistic?

But that's exactly what it seemed like, my methods and voice were so well turned against me.

I suppose the only way she could have made it more perfect and biting is if she had somehow got someone like you (another Brian Dykeman) [to] serve as the perpetrator of said offense. Think of how poignant that would be. I'd be left to feel even more like I wrote the letter to myself.

Thankfully the situation isn't so dire, but I still don't know what to do. See, I feel there should be a gumption marring response in kind to overshadow such a caustic display of thought invested impropriety. It's like she studied me and studied me, learned all my tricks and learned all my tricks and then boom, used what she studied and studied and learned and learned specifically against me. It'd be the very definition of 'spiteful' if the word 'redundant' were also a part of it's definition.

So, I don't feel I'm being figuratively heavy handed with my pen when I write: it was as if I was witness to concentrated evil (the kind without the pulp a lot of people prefer strained away.) 

I like pulp myself, what about you? Orange juice specifically. Like, pomegranate pulp or passion fruit would suck, what with all the seed remnants 

and what not, you know? (assuming you've cracked open either of those two pepos; I don't know if they develop from an 'inferior ovary' but they look like a bunch of goo covered insect eggs, I'd definitely err on the side of saying that's 'inferior' if I were a botanist ascribing classifying denotations based on how they made me feel.)

I need to do something to get her back. But... I'm at a total loss as to how I should proceed.

You work with the likes of radiation and radar. How do you counteract those metaphysical forces? With knowledge of what negates real world, invisible magic maybe I can synthesize such ideas into some tactic on the page and get back at her for getting at me. 

Play the opposite.

The Anti-thesis

"...Criss-Cross."

Understanding my position in those terms what do you think should I do?
