Very intriguing poem. I love the rhythm to it, I get a strong sense of the old gumshoe detective movie narratives.
Lots of great phrases here that I love, especially ‘I travel at the speed of light one gallon at a time’.
I am not completely certain of the Ricardo Montalban tie-in, but that didn’t stop my enjoyment of this poem. I’ve read it several times and like it a lot.
