The volume is a redux of Kanie's IC and of two volumes by Nagae (primarily her √3), as well as some previously unpublished works. All Japanese poems from the two appear in English translation by Smith. The volume also includes a bilingual poem by Smith and a multilingual matrix by Nagae. Remixes (√) are written as helix poems with Smith writing in between the lines of Nagae and Kanie's Japanese originals, then translating the interwoven Japanese lines into his English translations.
