ANCIENTING

Take old woman
and unravel:
whisk away whisker and worry line
Smooth out skin-bend
wrought of smiling.
Take old woman and un-wrinkle
obtain little girl.
Easy.
Sad!

Reverse gear process:

Take child and craft woman
craft further
find old woman.
find death.
Impossible!
Thankfully.

[from the collection 'Stray kites on string-less days']
