The verses of the collection are instantaneously free and cause conflict to the codified trivial way of thinking. They have an internal dark syntactic rhythm because of a non-logical conception of things in the way the poet perceives them. Images are offered which cannot be reduced to a fashionable logical process since they do not necessarily reflect the data of experience but are enlarged by imagination, being non-pretentious, non-disciplined, fresh and newborns which expand our visual field and offer us another dimension of things. The poet uses a special language code with terms which often are not decodified for the sake of a fuller understanding of the poetic meaning.
