Even sociopaths can lift their chin and be heard.

Nobody can take that from them.  The body signals

an urge—and let go.  Just because.  The prize for them

is the howl.  But the thing that looks at another’s howl, 

hears it, intuits the emotion behind it,

sees the emotion hover in the air

and yearns, no, does understand is 

the soul.
