Poetry. "The mind may move faster than the hand can write but Reed Bye's poems capture the dictates of thought as processed by the conspiratorial and wandering eye, all the light and shadow of the natural world, the peripheral glimpses of people and places where few poets ever go. Lucid, abstract, impulsive, beyond the pale—FIRE FOR THOUGHT is both a summing up and a starting over—"what seems to be necessity," and something much more."—Lewis Warsh
"Reed Bye's meditations on meditation open out into lovely Hopkinsesque melodies. There's a clarity here spawned from questions about inside and outside, mind and body, and who we are as humans in our landscapes."—Lisa Jarnot
