I've been reading a poem "Song to Joannes" by a futurist poet Mina Loy. Her poems are hard to interpret but there is one line that really confuses me.
Nothing so conserving
As cool cleaving
Note of the Q H U
Apart from other seeming nonsense, there's this Q H U.
I'm asking here because this poem is supposedly dedicated to her Italian lover with whom she lived in Florence in 1915-16. So I thought that by "Note of the Q H U" she meant a note to/by her lover and "Q H U" can be some acronym in Italian. For example, "It was fantastic" or "See you tomorrow" or whatever.
My other guess it might be a note of some perfume because there's a line about smelling further on.
Any thoughts about what it can mean? Or if this Italian at all?
