    1. she wouldbe standing in front of the door to some hotel room where once inside,the john would start drinking and she would begin to feelclaustrophobic. She hated those suffocating rooms with their two ironbeds on which she could never get a good sleep.

      This proves that the setting is important in the story. Sarita mentions that the hotel rooms make her feel claustrophobic and describes how awful the hotel rooms are. This gives the readers an uneasy feeling because they know that Sarita is describing the rooms where she sleeps with men.

    2. Sarita because her father very much wanted her toknow how to read and write.

      If Sarita would focus on school instead of being a prostitute, she would not have been in this situation where she had to make money illegally.

    1. Speaker- speaker is melancholic and bitter over the fact that they broke up with their partner.

      words like 'grey' and 'white' along with sentences such as 'the sun was white' and 'the smile on your mouth was the deadliest thing' show how the speaker is sad and lonely and doesn't see the bright side of life anymore after the breakup.

    2. The smile on your mouth was the deadest thing Alive enough to have strength to die;

      Oxymoron that shows lack of feelings and emotions

    3. grayish leaves

      Greyish leaves end up in rotting and since this whole poem is about love, loss and memories, it could indicate that the leaves rotted just like their relationship did.

    4. We stood by a pond that winter day,

      The word 'stood' suggests that there is a lack of movement which contributes to lifeless atmosphere and 'winter' reflects the cold emotions between their relationship.

    5. We stood by a pond that winter day, And the sun was white, as though chidden of God, And a few leaves lay on the starving sod; – They had fallen from an ash, and were gray.

      The structure of the poem is ABBA

    6. Neutral Tones

      The whole poem has this sense of lifelessness running through it, the speaker is unable or unwilling to introduce anything positive into the experience.
