Ashes' Phobia Of Mail Trucks - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN MD
My wife was sitting there in our bedroom
Near a window and near our bed.
She was repairing a coat.
This coat was too long and she wanted to shorten it.
Two cats were resting quietly on our bed
One on each side of my wife, looking at her.
Now it was eleven in the morning.
Tired of lying, they sat up to rest.
Ashes turned her head to look at the sky.
By chance, she saw a brown mail truck by roadside
Immediately, she jumped off the bed
She hid herself very well under the middle of our bed.
We called her many times but she continued to hide.
So we waited until she felt safe to come out.
My wife asked the Veteranian about this
She explained that this cat had previous truck trauma.

ASHES SỢ XE BƯU PHẨM - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN
Vợ tôi ngồi đó trong phòng
Bên cạnh cửa sổ, bên giường chúng tôi
Bà thì sửa áo trên giường
Áo này dài qúa bây giờ cắt đi.
Hai mèo nằm đó im lìm
Mỗi con một phía ngồi nhìn vợ tôi.
Bây giờ mười một giờ rồi
Chán nằm mèo lại chỉ ngồi đó chơi.
Ashes ngoảnh cổ nhìn trời
Tình cờ nó thấy bên đường xe nâu.
Vội vàng nó nhẩy xuống ngay
Tài tình nó nấp, nằm sâu gầm giường.
Gọi hoài nó vẫn trốn chui
Thôi đành chờ nó đến khi hoàn hồn.
Vợ tôi đã hỏi Vet rồi
Bà nói nó trước khổ đời vì xe
