Disconnect from loneliness

Spotted this kitchen cleaner taking a break in a back alley. She was so fixated on her smartphone, she never noticed I was taking her picture at close range. She wasn't bothered by the intense stench of the garbage dump or swarming cock roaches all over. She's alone in the alley, but not at all lonely, thanks to her glowing smartphone.
