William L. Alton

End of the Day

The men in my family sat
out on the front porch with jars of hooch, smelling
of work and tobacco. They didn't say much. They were never good
with words, preferring to do things with their hands.

William L. Alton started writing in the Eighties while incarcerated in a psychiatric prison. Since then his work has appeared in Gloom Cupboard, Amarillo Bay and Breadcrumb Scabs among others. He earned both his BA and MFA from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon where he continues to live with his wife and sons.
