and sugar we’re going down swinging


Ubiquitous, adj.
When it’s going well, the fact of it is everywhere.
It’s there in the song that shuffles into your ears.
It’s there in the book you’re reading.
It’s there on the shelves of the store as you reach for a towel and forget about the towel.
It’s there as you open the door.
As you stare off into the subway, it’s what you’re looking at.
You wear it on the inside of your hat.
It lines your pockets.
It’s the temperature.
The hitch, of course, it that when it’s going badly, it’s in all the same places.”

-David Levithan
