The poems in Well Enough to Travel are lashed together with lyrical lines that seethe, pulse, rise, and descend through love and loss, disappointment and desperation. To travel is not to wander or explore, but rather to search for one’s self—to choose to die and be renewed, Ophelia resurrected. In her second chapbook of poems, Jia Oak Baker constructs well-wrought images with emotional resonance, sometimes surreal, to give insight into how relationships deteriorate—how the whale mouth of expectation swallows us whole, how we all drown there, and how we save ourselves afterwards.
