Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Natalie Diaz Curating Poetry by Queer Indigenous Women

Start by reading one, just savoring it, then get up, walk around, look out the window, let the words and ideas and rhythms just move with you. Then come back and read some more. When you’re done here, find other works by these mesmerizing poets. Keep reading. Keep dreaming. Be inspired, and keep reaching for the love and generosity; the best of your queer femme humanity.

Natalie Diaz, you get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for bringing together such a wonderful, inspiring group of poets. No’u Revilla, Janet McAdams, Lehua M. Taitano, Deborah A. Miranda, and Arianne True – thank you, thank you!

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.”)
