Different and The Same

They in the same seats
in the same time
one right on top of the other
neither acknowledged the other
as though to each of them
the other didn’t exist.

Their differences were significant
one wouldn’t put up with
half the interaction the other might willingly shrug off
and vice versa
one wouldn’t have garnered half the other’s attention
they were opposites
but not in the meaning of sex.

They held different ideals in mind
one sought solace
the other love
one sought peace
the other dependence
and on
and on.

Different goals
different needs
which meant
of course
that they were
one and the same.
