This week, a text excerpted from Miguel Gutierrez’s performance myendlesslove, which runs this Wednesday through Saturday (Oct. 16-19) at 8pm at the Abrons Arts Center in Manhattan. (Click here for tickets and more information about the piece.)

I went to the city and I realized I love you
I went to the buildings and I realized I love you
I went to the streets and I realized I love you
I went to the desert and I realized I love you
I went to the mountains and I realized I love you
I went to the cliff and I realized I love you
I went to the bridge and I realized I love you
I went to the canyon and I realized I love you
I went to the river and I realized I love you
I went to the museum and I realized I love you
I went to the wall and I realized I love you
I went to the toilet and I realized I love you
I went to the bookstore and I realized I love you
I went to the wind and I realized I love you
I went to the clouds and I realized I love you
I went to the moon and I realized I love you
I went to the sunrise and I realized I love you
I went to the end and I realized I love you

I went to my face and I realized I love you
I went to my eyes and I realized I love you
I went to my mouth and I realized I love you
I went to my lips and I realized I love you
I went to my tongue and I realized I love you
I went to my neck and I realized I love you
I went to my chest and I realized I love you
I went to my arms and I realized I love you
I went to my hands and I realized I love you
I went to my dick and I realized I love you
I went to my ass and I realized I love you
I went to my legs and I realized I love you
I went to my feet and I realized I love you
I went to my toes and I realized I love you
I went to my bed and I realized I love you
I went to my dreams and I realized I love you
