    His brow knitted in frustration, Thomas tried again to iron a perfect crease in his..

    Hi teachers.

    I have a example for absolute phrase here, but I am confuse sometime if it's an absolute phrase or it's a simple past tense

    His brow knitted in frustration, Thomas tried again to iron a perfect crease in his dress pants.

    Thanks
