    The maple "seed" is the part of the maple key that the squirrels eat. Perhaps this one could read:

    a maple key
    helicopters
    onto blacktop

    a feather
    slowly embarks on a different trip
    from the bird

    Helicopters wavering-
    in the forest of maples
    the autumn sounds

    wind rising --
