This paper refers to a street art installation by Robert Gilarski, now in the Planty Park in Mikołów. The installation “schody Wojaczka”, which visualizes Rafał Wojaczek’s poem Sezon, represents the work of the poet written on the steps of a stairway. The author of this paper interpets the poem and considers the difference between the semantics of Sezon’s form as appearing in pring and the one which can be read from the street art project. She points to the influence of topography and analyses the transposition of the poem’s form into a pictorial inscription, where steps-verses play a major role. The most radical change is the one concerning the vertical reading mode, governed by the direction of upward climb on the stairs-verses. A change in expectations towards versification is not meaningless for the interpretation of the work. This reversed order of reading the poem in the installation bears signs of an artistic provocation and presents itself as a metanoia.
