April is National Poetry Month. On The Point, we welcome three poet guests, including Justen Ahren, Martha's Vineyard Poet Laureate.

Ahren has a new collection of poems called A Machine for Remembering, and a new album. He talks about inspirations for the album: a piano that briefly was stored at his house, and migrants whom he assisted that are living in a Greek refugee camp.
