Star in the Throat, Fire in the Cupboard

 
Catie Rosemurgy

About This Poem

 

“‘Star in the Throat, Fire in the Cupboard’ is loosely based on events that occurred throughout northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan during the 1800s and early 1900s. The poem comes from a collection about a fictional town in which several conflated and highly-altered historical disasters happen over and over. The town keeps burning, flooding, dwindling, and finally disappearing. This particular poem speculates on how an event (in this case the Peshtigo, Wisconsin, firestorm of 1871—the worst recorded forest fire in United States history) becomes distorted through repetition and retelling.”
—Catie Rosemurgy
