This article deals with attempted reconstruction of a performative variety of literary subjectivity which emerges from the interpretation of a few selected poems by Miron Bialoszewski. Particular attention is paid to the ingenuous concept of 're-writing', which for the author of the essay is a sort of interpretative key to understanding the specificity of a relationship between the world, language, and subject in Bialoszewski's output. The author argues that the act of writing (or rather, re-writing) becomes a privileged method of subjective existence, spanning over both the empirical and textual spheres. Bialoszewski's writing strategy is described as a 'fagic' one, with a reference to the poet's extremely unique capability of transforming any forms of experience (particularly, linguistic experience) into his own individual idiom. This peculiar skill contains Bialoszewski's basic self-creative existential formula consisting in a conscious creation of the 'self' through it being rewritten in a new linguistic order. This attitude is conditioned by the radically anti-essentialist input concept of existence, the original ontological weakness of the 'self', which, in an integrated form filled with a sense, may seemingly manifest itself in a text, owing to the act of writing.
