Everyone has a poem for an ex-lover out there. Knowing this, Dust Creative sponsored not one, but two books of poems embracing this theme. Created through submissions from mostly 4 Corners contributors, the books debuted on Valentine's Day in a non-traditional celebration of the date in 2019 and 2021.
