Many Red Devils

Red devils are our own inner demons we each must confront. They are
separate and different for every individual, yet they are all with in us
and we must deal with them of our own accord.

Perhaps this was a telling of when one is beginning to write on a subject,
but the words that flow out are reflective of a state of mind the writer
was unaware of and was suprised by the change of attitude as he was

What a shame and loss to get nothing from this. I interpret it to be about
expressing oneself honestly and truly, and maybe they're devils because
they're the things about ourselves we've never had the courage to face or
admit to, but to struggle to put that "red muck" into words releases,
names, and conquers those facets of our self. What a shame to not enjoy
this, to miss out on all it says. One would have to know nothing about
honest personal writing.

I think the poem has a feeling of relief attached to it. While the speaker
finds writing that way strange, he also is happy to put his thoughts on
paper, or out into the world. They may not be the best of thoughts, but
they are his.

I think this poem is just saying that his work is influenced by something
against God.. like "devils"
