Saffron Locked Up/ InJenna Cardinale
The Gravier Street jail was important for the business of hospitality in the South. It's important to keep the saffron locked up at night. It's not just the gamble— It's the real numbers. This city was always smooth, but never made of milk. Up against the levee's thin breeze, free women sell their daughters. This old space upholds traditions older than color.
