It is the V you double, not the U, as if to use
two valleys in a valise is to savvy the vacuum
of a vowel at a powwow in between sawteeth
Is this letter a residuum of what troubles you?
if you slice it down the middle, does it not
hereafter indicate a twofold victory over life?
If it maps the rise and fall of fortune, like a yo-yo,
why oh, why oh, must you find four palm trees
in a park, if not to make of them your symbol?
It is the name for an X whose V does not view
the surface of a lake but the mirror on a wall
where U & you become a tautonym, a continuum.
