In poems by Barbara Korun. cracks, apart from the mundane senses (I am burning, burning / at the stake of emotions), have completely opposite connotations as well – a crack in the sky. In the ambivalent co-existence of eros and bios the two poles refer to the crack between sexes. The crack is, in a nutshell, an empirically-lucid notion of the “entrance” that has opened up for stepping into the lyricism and its experience. Through it the author reaches for the core of real life realities, bringing them up from the stupor and turning them into poetry. The result of this poetic procedure is that, for example, a landscape as a domineering frame of author’s feelings and contemplative comprehensions turns inside out and enables the author, at her will, to choose unknown, completely poetically inner relations – most emotional objects take over their reflections as abstract changes, and vice versa, pure abstractions become real.
