    Cold anger? Is the collocation proper here?

    Context:

    In the coldness of the garage, my entire body trembled from
    both the cold anger and intense fear. I used my tongue to lick the
    burn and soothe my throbbing arm. I wanted to scream, but I
    refused to give Mother the pleasure of hearing me cry. I stood
    tall. I could hear Mother talking to Ron upstairs, telling him how
    proud she was of him, and how she didn’t have to worry about
    Ron becoming like David – a bad boy.

    An anger is cold? What does it mean?

    Record it as poetic license and in terms of meaning, check with the author----or David.
