Summary/Abstract: This is poetry that does not run away from confessional, but the author does not intend to present her childhood struggle to the readers and burden us with personal experiences. Her obsession is more with the world she sees, the one around her, closer and further, foreboding in the past and the one that is just becoming through forebodings - one at the same time a magical and cruelly naked world, all built in opposites. In tenderness and rudeness. This is where the strength, dynamism and beauty of her poetry begins. And in the ability to easily describe things in many ways and from completely different and often opposing perspectives. Her range of interests, which find their place in poetry, is very wide - from philosophy, through classical art, feminist icons, geography, tourist maps of cities, to pop culture. Here, in the same place, you will meet Aztec and Mayan gods, heroes and heroines of Mexican series, paintings from the Sistine Chapel, women from Caravaggio's paintings, heroes from anime, Roman goddesses and many close, everyday deities that the author revives before us, which she finds on the streets of distant cities or on a bus while driving to work.
