After his parents divorced, he moved with his mother to Oklahoma, spending summers in Central Washington with his father. These poems trace his life through abuse, addiction, homelessness, and mental illness. They tell the story in images and fragments with a single line tying the whole thing together from start to finish. Alton writes of himself, his family, and the people he has known from childhood, both in mental hospitals and on the streets.
