Song of Napalm was about a man having flashbacks of times spent during the Vietnam War. He described how he seen a girl running with napalm stuck on her as he knew her time would be up soon. He also describes how her body slowly comes to a halt when it finally wears off on her.
Song of Napalm "Still I close my eyes and see the girl running from her village, napalm stuck to her dress like jelly, her hands reaching for the no one who waits in waves of heat before her" That stanza relates to the passage as a whole because the poem is about how he still has bad flashbacks of the war. The girl that had napalm attached to her body was a soldier that helped the narrator in the war and some things as tragic as that, can effect someone's life badly.
