Prairie Modernist Noir 11 (2018 / 2020)
Now, this...this...THIS is...a resort. Wrong time of year. There was a swimming pool, a frozen swimming pool.
This place is called The Lilac, and it advertises itself with a logo of a great big blue dolphin. The big blue dolphin is “standing up” on its tail fin at the edge of the pool. You tell your child—and they have to be pretty small to get through his you-know-what under the tailfin—to go up the little stairs inside the dolphin and then jump out of the dolphin’s mouth into the swimming pool.
It’s the good-times version of Jonah and the Whale.
