The article presents an interpretation of Jarosław Marek Rymkiewicz’s poem "Pamięci B.L." [In
Memory of B.L.] that is being regarded as an example of modern apocrypha. Canonical text
that Rymkiewicz refers to in an apocrypha-like manner is Bolesław Leśmian’s poem "Topielec".
The author of the article recalls the theoretical descriptions of the poetics of apocrypha
(Starowieyski, Rubinkiewicz, Naumow, Genette, Balbus, Nycz) and presents typical for the
apocrypha complex form of the palimpsest in the poem "Pamięci B.L." [In Memory of B.L.].
Rymkiewicz’s poem turns out to be an apocryphic complement, transtextual diffusion as well
as forgery. Leśmian’s anthropological and metaphysical ideas are being completed by the
Christian belief in resurrection of the body that does not follow his philosophy based on
Bergson’s ideas. This mystification is a trace of apocryphic forgery.
