Composed of a scattered novella ("Patricide in C Minor"), a performance text ("Resistance"), lyric poems, anti-lyrics, verse essays, prose poems and their de-formed counterparts, short fictions, hybrids, parodies, dramatic monologues, and works less amenable to classification, American Incident revels in polyphony and political disquiet.
