'Fade the Lure' is a small collection of poems and photographs created between 2014 and 2017, during Dena Yago's experience working and living alongside emotional support dogs in Los Angeles. The book explores the possibility for the poem to account for relationships that materialise and live beyond words, while existing in confined structures. The images are cropped to focus on the dogs, diminishing the human-centred narrative in favour of an empathetic view of the animals themselves. In the artist's words, "poetry is sometimes "a form of communication created out of the desire to avoid, and an inability to engage in other forms of direct communication".
