Portrait of Rage and Age

The couple stands still –
And perky like dawn.

Femininity had silently signed
The brown paper-like frame
Into her own –

Using her signature
Nail-polish-painted red rose
And almost cherry lipstick.

Age has her black hair
Up in twin buns –
Almost a couple themselves.

Rage manages –
To sneak no peek at their youthful essence.

I am a current undergraduate student working toward a career as a professional astronomer and poet., I have been writing poems by hand, and by typing, since before college. Each year brings me closer to publishing them.
