Questions from "one" (pages 31-36):
1. This poem is the first one Shange wrote and the first line "orange butterflies & aqua sequins" inspired the title of the book. Do you think Shange has a special connection with the lady in red since she was the first lady to speak to her?
2. Why do you think the lady in red wants to be desired by so many men, but doesn't appear to want any of them for more than a night? Where does her sadness stem from?
3. What are your thoughts about these lines? "she waz the wrath/of women in windows/fingerin shades/ol lace curtains/camoflagin despair &/stretch marks"
