About this item

Orbit connects the intimate with what is farthest from us, mixing what we can imagine with what is daily and near. Landscapes stretch from stable and fulfilling domestic interiors to the destiny of our sun as an exploding red giant. That dilemma of human fertility and love facing ultimate destruction is orchestrated by the author’s provocative voice and coiled lines, which fondle and handle the reader’s heart and mind in a bright light. The book insists on connecting the three eras of human experience – Then, Now, and When – at every turn. Orbit continues the unique aesthetic of Vogelsang’s first five award-winning books through its “oddly direct original persona,” its “mind – prophetic, wild, loony,” its “language of surveillance and trembling,” and the poems’ ability “to find and magnify the emotion suddenly, instantaneously” (comments draw from other poets’ reviews.) Vogelsang’s new bookOrbit is a dialogue between daily life and transcendent vision, insisting on the reality of each.
