Dear Person,

I read you last night. I thought I was going to die. Person, you remind me of me.Person, you have less hair and more sex than I do, but you remind me of me.

I thought I was going to die because there I was inside of you. I would die after I finished the book. My limbs went numb. I thought everything was dying. I almost didn't finish you. But. I needed to know how to fix things.

I think I figured it out. I wasn't going to write this letter. Then I heard my room laughing at me. I heard my apartment laughing at me. So maybe now something will be different when I go home to sleep later. I sleep in a different city than you. When I read you, Person, I just changed Chicago to my city. But. Everything else is the same. Sort of. Close enough.

I think you should have a warning on your cover. Something like: this book will kill you if you finish reading it because you are the person in this book titled Person. And being the person in this book will lose feeling in your limbs and think you will die not because anyone dies in the book but reading about yourself will make you die. You will be invested.

Dear Person,

[Attempt 2]
I think I know you or you remind me of someone I know. Cool.
