Abstract: The paper offers a contextual close reading of Andrzej Busza’s poem Mała Apokalipsa (Small Apocalypse), which appeared in the volume Znaki wodne… published in 1969. The poem was written after the tragic collapse of the slag heap in Aberfan in South Wales on September 21, 1966. What brought death and destruction to the small Welsh village was, ironi-cally, one of its most familiar features: a towering colliery spoil tip, matter tamed and domesticated, the work of human hands; the daily companion of the villagers, witness to their humdrum life of drudgery and toil. Raised over many years, it slid downhill in a moment.
