Dreamed An Empty Coffee Maker

Through various interpretations
I fish – what a dream featuring
an empty maker of coffee may mean.

Awake now, near my French Press,
found – a feline’s sadness 
beseeches the joy of meditation.

One insight portends,
I miss my mom.
I stroke the cat until her biting
softly lays me off.

I murmur, ‘Resist dialing the hoary house,
yards needing a better cure for arthritis,
needles with self searching for deep veins.’

Kettle whistles. Too hot, yet
air thickens near the rear of everything.
