No the top isn't going to stay straight on the left trunk.
I tore a branch out of the right trunk above the 1st branch and rotated the trunk ~90º counter clockwise
and the left trunk ~90º clockwise.

Plan is to let the tree recover next year before I make any more decisions on trunks. The right trunk really took an insult today
and may not survive. Really can't say yet on the low left branch right out of the nebari. Plan was to sacrifice for girth eventually
but this all depends on the right trunk now.
