This haunted thesis, Premonitory Urges, attempts to move between dream, surrealism, reality, voice, vocalization, silence, and three generations of the armored and squished female handing down misrepresentation through text messages and wars. The narrator within this text is fluid, forgetting, honest, remembering, meticulous, and forgiving. The narrator haunts those that are still living and as a result, the work itself is a haunted but tethered dream all too close to home.
