Guy Fieri is How I Say I Love You

My dad never came to visit
When I moved to the east coast

But every few weeks,
I’d get a cryptic text

The name of a nearby restaurant
He saw on an episode of
Triple D

It was his way of saying

“I’m thinking of you”

Long after our lives diverged

Past the point of carefree conversation

We still had Guy Fieri
