Love and Song of Napalm
Song of Napalm: This poem was written by a man for his wife. In the poem he was discussing how he saw a girl standing in the field near their home running from the Viet Cong. He was telling his wife about it, because it seemed so real to him.
Song of Napalm: I believe its when the author states "I am trying to say this straight: for once I was sane enough to pause and breath" because its like he was realizing that was just a dream.
The message the authors are trying to convey is that war is a really scary place to be, its like a storm you can't escape from. But on the other hand, its a good place to be to remember the past because you're too scared to worry about your future.
