today’s word: footless

footless: lacking feet (also, apodal); lacking a firm support or basis; unsubstantial; awkward or inept.

Sans regret

My remorse floats to the surface— dead carp,
lifeless and repulsive. What reel will trawl
this shameful gift to shore?  All those
to whom I would apologize have died.

November is too late to plant a garden.
By now, snow has frozen all intents.
With hoe, I crosshatch the ice,
tacking a footless foothold.
