From faraway hotel rooms to quiet rides in the country, from Perfect Strangers to late-night infomercials, from a Mickey Mouse alarm clock to an all-too-familiar snooze button, and from cheese fries and 3 a.m. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and Cheetos to Pepto-Bismol, Greg Santos's poems detail, essentially, what all we Gen Y-ers must sadly recognize--or, perhaps, proudly claim--as the sobering truths that daily remind us, whether we like it or not, that we are growing up.
