Yay!

I'm glad this worked for you. I wanted to go somewhere different than the usual "shoulder angel and shoulder devil hate each other" trope. I figured after all that time, they might form a bond, and once that happens, it changes where they fit into the universe.

Re: Yay!

I like the metaphysical nature of it, how they are recognized as a yin-yang of the universe.

I also like how the short lines evokes the size of the devil and angel.

Re: Yay!

That's the beauty of poetry: interpretation.

Re: Yay!

Me,too. Especially when they find aspects that add a depth to it I didn't realize was there.

Re: Yay!

I have deep readers. It's not rare for them to find well-hidden eastereggs, and occasionally they find one I didn't realize I had placed!
