Skin by Justin Brouckaert (Release Date: August 20th, 2016)

Using the music of rapper/pop culture mogul Aubrey “Drake” Graham as a springboard, poet Justin Brouckaert delivers a collection that is as emotionally affecting as it is lyrical and playful. Skin fluctuates beautifully between lovesick wanderlust and over-the-top bravado in a way that mimics and reflects upon Drake’s best tracks and albums, and these poems will stay with you long after you’ve finished the collection, the cadences and concerns of Brouckaert settling over you like a thick, second coating.
