Poetry. CATCHING ON gives the reader permission to open the hidden blue highways of their imagination and the strength to understand their complexities and truths. With his virtuosity of language and prowess to frame an impermanent moment, Reed Bye exposes the hidden use of the apostrophe and the powerful kinetic energy of silence. CATCHING ON is undoubtedly "A joyous occasion."
