Summary:
"Full of rhythm and big-breath lines, Troupe's poetry explodes from the page, capturing the spirit of America. Inspired by contemporary art, music, literature, and sports, Troupe dismantles the dangerously cliched, wooden rhetoric saturating our national discourse and rebuilds the language in poems bursting with beauty, energy, and enough imaginative fire to light the way to the future."--Publisher's website.
