Love Algorithm

By Eleni Cay


The poem ' You Want to Come to Mine?' was longlisted in the Bedford International Writing Competition 2019.

In Love Algorithm, a tender touch of lyric love fuses with the harshness of profit-driven motivations to sharpen our appreciation of the digital age. Loss of an authentic self is never far away but neither is hope for the discovery of a new kind of fellowship. As the scenes shift from London to Paris to Shanghai, the poems intensify the global connections that make love a constant riddle for all mankind.
