Darwinist Logic on Unrequited Love

Katie Willingham

About This Poem


"I see Darwin's work as such an important lens for how to understand our world, so I wondered what would happen if I leaned on him further, in more unusual contexts. One way to see this is that he provides the backbone of the poem, but at the same time, the speaker makes this happen, such that they become inextricable."
—Katie Willingham
