           late-night ice cream— 
           if inner voice
           ignores gravity
           to lick reflection
           upside down.

    I haven't visited your poems lately. Why not I think to myself??? I've been missing out. You can restructure and twist words and meanings like no other. That's gifted . Thank you for getting me all excited when I read this one.

    Now that you deleted the other version, a lot of the comments below are obsolete lol.

    While our expressive styles are perhaps as far apart as possible within the linguistic confines of English, somehow the underlying truth as beauty inside out feels warmly familiar and exotically alien benign. Thanks for visiting my source of gravity as well, and for your more lavish rain of praise. G.O.

    Honestly trippy, Ruben. I was instantly reminded of that Matrix scene: "It is not the spoon that bends ... it is only yourself." Your short verse never fails to impress, and you really seem to "get" a crucial concept that many seem to lack when it comes to short form ... simple words to paint a big picture. A power of suggestion that implies more than it is letting on. Excellent tanka!

    I am SO glad to see you've changed your name back! I had no IDEA who you were (Don't do that again and that's an order) That aside, I 'suspect' this is a very clever, well crafted poem which is your usual...However, If you INSIST on changing it again, might I suggest 'The Unusual Suspect?' In addition, some have been commenting on their favorite version. After reading and studying it multiple times, I prefer the one between the lines...Great Tanka Ruben - Tim
