Nearly Ghostly Phase

since maybe before Vietnam, Korea intense long periods
critical phase coalition launch airpower operation
dense neighbourhoods unyielding defense of tactics

besieged breaking a nearly three-year blockade
backed militias a step closer last inch
had fired at targets near city important strategically

a ghostly pale blue almost transparent
flagging as egg-bearing off-limits for conservation
weirdness of crustacean pulled up in a trap

-- Clark Allison

Military Under Trump 'More Aggressive'
Syrian forces break long siege of eastern city
Ghostly,translucent lobster caught off Maine
