Paris insight – ‘Different Spokes’

Part of Paris’ beauty is the way
it accepts and assimilates diversity – exemplars
of myriad languages, cultures, styles,
tastes and dreams all come together and unify
as Parisans without ever sublimating their individuality.
Here two very different denizens take different paths,
but share the city and a sideways glance.
