Stephen Crane - I stood upon a high place,

I stood upon a high place,
And saw, below, many devils
Running, leaping,
and carousing in sin.
One looked up, grinning,
And said, "Comrade! Brother!"

Brother?

Maybe the devils were once stood upon the high place the man was looking down from. Perhaps the devil simply recognized the man and was greeting him, maybe even calling him down to join.

I believe this poem to mean change. The man in the poem was recognized by his friends (the devils). They want the man to come down and "dwell in sin" but that was in the past now he is a better person.
