Two words or phrases are repeated anywhere within the first binate octave, and the same mirroring effect with the same or different pair of texts is done for the second binate octave. There remains continuity across both stanzas, with the last line of the first stanza moving seamlessly — across the stanza break as dovetail — into the first line of the second stanza. The twofold form achieves some manner of dialectical play between both stanzas, along a theme or image or allegory or some other literary trope.
