Old Age is Oblique

Image/Art credit to © Suzanne VanBebber

Late summer slathers rouge;
the wrong color
for her complexion,
but in triangular 
forest witchcraft,
she make-believes.

Besides, leaves are two-tone,
dark past their prime,
but blemish-less underneath,
and the blooms of youth
morph to Pacman ghosts,
invisible blurs dry humping in heat.

Fertility is fashionable;
old age is oblique.
