unwanted tenants

Mint repels rodents
—their little sinuses
cannot abide the scent.

I was hoping bats were rodents
because sprigs of mint
are more friendly
than an eviction notice.

But bats are not rodents.
That means
I have to seal them out
before winter.

Not going to be easy
especially come Christmas.
