The Tower is a collection of poems in a post-Zombie Apocalypse world. Inspired by a dream, these poems explore the nature of memory, mythology, media, pop culture, and patrilineal relationships. The architecture of the poems emulate Freudian concepts of symbolic overdetermination in dream imagery by building both structural and symbolic parallels in the work.
