En sus páginas el verso libre, el soneto y los angeles prosa poética se alternan como instrumentos de precisión destinados a proporcionar una clave íntima: ciertas lecturas, ciertos amores, una esquina de Buenos Aires, el recuerdo de alguna muerte violenta, el cambiante rostro que permanece en los espejos. «Ajedrez misterioso l. a. poesía —escribió Borges—, cuyo tablero y cuyas piezas cambian como en un sueño y sobre el cual me inclinaré después de haber muerto.»
