Crane's perspective on the world is different from that of of the general majority. Beauty, divinity, and God in that "black world" is something that he can not fully comprehend or experience, even though he has already seen a glimpse of it.

it may be that Crane speaks of the inability to attain what one seeks. And flashes of such desirable things is what motivates the masses. But he may equally- or in most likelihood - be speaking not of this.
