Yenaros' mix of lyricism, detail, and style is a dangerous poetic force to be reckoned with.

Screen Time

An entire generation fixated

On a screen.

We can’t seem to tell the difference between

Fantasy and make-belief.


Focused on things that

Aren’t real

To the point

Where we don’t know how

To feel.


Same do the same things on

Our phone each day.

We check our apps, our likes,

Our status, to see if we managed

To reach fame.


It comes to the point where we look

Obsessed.

We think that looking good and

Doing obscene stuff will bring

Us success.

The sad part is that you’re right.


People don’t like to meet

Face to face.

They always want to move

From place to place.


Spending more time on our phones

Than we do with our family.

Times have changed.

We say “I love you”

To that cute face before

We say it to our own bloodlines.

Things have gotten rearranged.


Hours a day

Spent on media.

Words have been destroyed

To the point

Where we rule out the encyclopedia.

Our eyes are being

Damaged by focusing on

What’s wrong.


Maybe one day we’ll have enough

Sight to break away from

All this stuff and be strong.
