Feed them peaches, while slyly pinching their forearms.

They won't notice.

Think: dolphins can talk.

Maybe: After many years of swimming, our hairlines stabilized to their present position.

And: They birth babies in bathtubs.

Find your crown, the hairline, or where it was;

remember learning the breast stroke.

Do not forget: Both of us are warm.

Lowly angle the head into the water, pivoting with the upper vertebrates of the neck,

which do not lift the head - but tilt it, for a breath-

into the air;

remember your hairline;

Use it as a guide in successive laps.

Dip into the water; remember your hairline.

The face should be parallel to the pool bottom,

the water resting just above the hairline.
