In her new collection, Travis Lane speaks of the 'impermanent elation' that 'a word,/ like a live fish in water, sometimes shows.' The language of Keeping Afloat flashes with wit, sensuousness, and a combination of faith (elation) and skepticism (impermanence). In a time when too many poets favour fragments or the plainest syntax, it's also a relief to read the aphorism.
