ode to guy fieri & my dad

Matt Mitchell

Guy Fieri tells the viewer

Flavortown is where

the gravitational force of bacon

warps the laws of space & time,

that they are perfect like

the bruised peaches at

the back of the produce stand,

& they believe him,

because the television leaks

neon pink light onto their carpets,

like Coke cans with knives puncturing

the bottoms, funneling seasoning

into eager hands

to salt the evening just right,

& when I come into the living room

after Dad turns on

Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives,

that is me saying I love you,

because I don’t know

any other way how,

& you could put that on a flip flop

& it’d still be beautiful.
