Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Morgan Parker

Reading a poem or more a day is clinically proven to increase your intuition, dreampower, and self-realization. Buy Morgan Parker’s most recent book of poetry, Magical Negro, or her previous books, There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé, and Other People’s Comfort Keeps Me Up At Night, or all of them, and get started!

Morgan Parker, you get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for your poetry, especially the poem “Now More Than Ever” in Magical Negro, for the fucks you do not give about comforting or explaining to white people, for Reparations, Live!, Poets With Attitude, and The Other Black Girl Collective.

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
