CHORUS/ a man in Canada has the aurora borealis all rigged up he tells the radio reporter that he engineers and records sound Ui the universe the northern lights clamor down at him they hurl what he calls "hissing whistlers" at the earth he says the chorus always sings to him in the wilderness a cacophony of swooping colored wings and maybe you do have to be in the right place at the right time to hear what is being sung to you for my painter friend Werner that was his bedroom the night his apartment building Ui New York City burned in those slowed-down moments when the smoke was thick as JeIl-O he knelt on the floor to get more air but the smoke was coming up from between the boards and he could not breathe he said he heard a voice tell him he could lie down then with his pet cat Ui his arms there was nothing to fear and dying would be all right or said the voice he could stand on his cold windowsill five stories up from the street and dive across an eight-foot gap headfirst through a plate glass window dive
