However, what I loved most about the poems is that they are great for reading out loud. While they come across as spontaneous and often conversational, still, as Dick Davis wrote, "Aaron Poochigian's technique is masterly." And it's his technique that makes the poems so readable. When I used to study Shakespearean acting, our teacher often admonished us to enjoy the language, and I find Cosmic Purr easy to enjoy in that way. It's not just the sounds and rhythms that are pleasing. Poochigian's thinking, the way he puts things, and the arguments behind what he says are pleasing too.
I don't usually like modern poetry. Good or bad, I often feel alienated from both the poet and his subject matter. But in Poochigian's poetry there is something for everyone, and, quality-wise, it's superb. It's already one of my new favorites, and I think it will be a favorite for years to come.
So when one picks up a poem book, there is a certain expectation of wanting to reach home, wanting to feel that warmth feeling that only real great poets can make you feel, if they are so well experts of their craft. And when those expectations are met, an amazing sense of vibration and satisfaction arise in you, along with great inspiration that you feel you can become just about anything you wish.
All these and more happened to me when I sat down to read "The Cosmic Purr".
I could not put the book down and each time I flipped to another page, the former poem kept haunting me and tried to take over my sight and mind back to the former page.
The language is intense and soothing at the same time and show immense amount of intelligence on behalf of its creator.
Very few are able to put black on white the way Aaron does here. And it is wonderful.
The Cosmic Purr by Aaron Poochigian is a beautiful work of art. I was delighted when I heard about his book of poems because I have always loved poetry and for some reason there have not been many poetry books landing on my desk for me to feature on my program. The Cosmic Purr was quite refreshing. When I sat down to read it I could not put it down until I had finished the book. Then after reading it I had a lingering feeling to read it again and again. Aaron Poochigian has many dimensions in his poetry. He has a line in one of his poems that truly describes what I felt when I was reading his book of poetry. It reads..."One moment in suspense spiraling outward into eloquence..." I am not going to give you the title of the poem. You will have to read The Cosmic Purr to find out for yourself and believe me his poetry is worth exploring. Aaron Poochigian truly is a fine poet.

Poochigian's poetry style is all the more mesmerizing because of his rhyming pattern: at times it is so occult that the poem must be read again and again to appreciate how subtle and then how obvious is his use of words - kinetic is the adjective that comes to mind. The joy is that his varying patterns of rhyme do not get in the way of the power of his statements but rather emphasize the fact that what he is sharing with us is more the poet's vantage, a position that encourages, no invites, us to see the themes of love and life differently. Some flavors follow:
GRAND FORKS, ND
To make it back home for the holidays,
Interstate Twenty-nine, a black ice glaze:
the smokestacks at the Crystal Sugar Plant
spouting the only mountains, tumbledown
slaughterhouses, barns sagging aslant,
and homesteads under heaps like winter wheat -
scant signs of life, and, goddamn, several feet
of fresh obscurity have blurred the town.
What now? The mustang hung up in a ditch
there's no choice but an outside world in which
hinged things are creaking - car doors, elbows, knees.
Time slows down as in epiphanies.
Breath swirls and swirls away. I had forgotten
snowflakes could float about like this, like cotton
from cottonwoods, like tufts of crystal pollen.
Or elsewhere in these little jewels of poems rises the following one:
You know that heap out on the stoop? The grand
dame hollowed out by meth and destitution?
Well, when I paid the toll, she squeezed my hand
and fed me nonsense I could understand:
`Love in the air's a kite cut form a string.
A red balloon, a sweet sort of pollution,
Changing the world - that's how it seemed in spring.
It smells like aftershave or some such thing.'
Poochigian indeed has heard the cosmic purr and brings round the circle not only from his vast experience at translating but also from his technical and, more important, his spiritual skill at finding those pathways that lead directly to our heart and mind. He is major, and this is only his beginning. Grady Harp, June 12
