Amy Gerstler's new book of poems, Scattered at Sea, is an exploration of getting lost, the unknown, mortality and remembrance. We ask her if a poem is a kind of thought. For Gerstler, poetry is a practice and a process related to thinking – something she can no longer do without paper. Her poems have a delightful, sonorous quality to them that she calls a "sound salad."
