In her third collection of poems, Orrery (Harbour $18.95), Donna Kane explores ideas of consciousness, transformation and space travel through the theme of Pioneer 10, an American space probe launched in 1972 to study Jupiter’s moons. The probe was retired in 2003 when it was hurled away from the solar system. (Orrery is the word for a mechanical model of the solar system, or of just the sun, earth and moon, used to represent their relative positions and motions.) 978-1-55017-918-7
