New Poem: "Estranged"

"Estranged" explores the themes of Walt Whitman's "To a Stranger" in a twenty-first century context.  People claim to understand Whitman, even to identify with him, but he would not identify with the vast majority of us today, our faces ever buried in cellphones, ears and brains buzzing with cyberfeed, and with our virtual friendships on social media.
