haiku retrospective ccxvi

eating all those mosquitoes
the colony of mother bats
in our chimney

besides the point
the tears on my youngest child's face
as he gets his rabies shot

fourth rabies shot
the hospital receptionist
greets us by name

summer of the bats
i open the window
to let out the fear
