This article will examine some poems from Do domínio plástico, which form a kind of lifting of some categories of pictorial values also present in poetry. These poems speak about the possess act of poetizing the emptiness and in empty space, from a "look" also "empty of everything" (ROSA, 2004, p. 11), will be studied under the theoretical apparatus of Octavio Paz (1972), Todorov (1980), Friedrich (1991), Mendes (2005) and Borges (2010).
