You have the presence of Troupe's brillaint immersion of contemporary thoughts/ideas with that of classical poetic forms: sestinas, villanelles, haikus & tankas - among them, a collection for the Point Loma Waste-Water Management Project in San Diego - and his literary musical/cadenced innovations covering a wide array of subjects from visual/sculptural art, to contemporary politics, to familial reflections/tropes and his speciality: forms attempting to emulate the steady pace and flow
of Jazz, especially that of Miles Davis.
Aside from some of the more lengthy, free-wheeling and boundlessly expanding poems, and perhaps from his (sometimes, but rarely) careless digressions into other lesser-known aspects of living and life, Quincy Troupe's poetry speaks with a resonance and clarity greater than the abstractions of most poets, and its
manifestions can best be seen through this work.
