RaveThe New York Times Book ReviewViolence against Indigenous people is not just historical but ongoing, systemic and institutional, Diaz reminds us ... This knowledge, however fraught, emboldens Diaz to celebrate her survival as a queer Aha Makhav woman living in the 21st century ... the book rejects stereotypes that cast Indigenous people as monocultural ... Postcolonial Love Poem is charged by the often violent intersection of colonizing languages (in this case, first Spanish and then English) with an Indigenous one (Mojave). That’s not to say the poems long for a pre-colonial culture ... There is an extreme lushness to the language Diaz uses, especially about love, sex and desire ... This book asks us to read the world carefully, knowing that not everything will be translated for us, knowing that it is made up of pluralities ... Diaz’s collection is no doubt one of the most important poetry releases in years, one to applaud for its considerable demonstration of skill, its resistance to dominant perspectives and its light wrought of desire.
