Canceled Postage Stamp

In a mirror my face appeared to me
Like a twice-canceled postage stamp ~ Charles Simic

Visage, vis a vis
Age notwithstanding

Round the block
Backwards forwards

Aquiver, candle on fire
We took measure

Image visage
Visage image

Measuring up
Slips from lips

Cups brimming
Gogh still life

Broth, juicy
Youth, timed

Origami, present
Folded expertly

No Dorian secretive
Zest intact, much

Weathered, lived
Twice canceled

Postage
