Dear Jack, my former regular Masseuse at Barai Thai Spa,

My therapist said it would help give me courage to finally call the police if I wrote you a letter. I should just stop being a punk and call 911 and they will come and arrest you and shut down the whole place. But then I think about how hard that will be for you. How I don’t want to hurt anyone just because I got hurt. How I don’t want to be another white woman using my race and privilege to bring harm to a brown man. How you would maybe have to go back to Vietnam. I know you’re from there because I’d been going to you for years.
