Oak Alley Mobile AL

Found in Mobile

Kamba published those
four oaks in transition

after Barbara’s folly
and the memorable trip

of the master’s daughter
–all a woman’s work.

Elizabeth published
the lack of Easter sunshine

over the bent hotel, just
before old farmer Penny

tried to buy the new
automatic housemaid.
