Gymnazistky. Prázdniny trinásťročnej / Grammar School Girls. Holidays of a Thirteen-Year-Old

The second collection of the poet is a nostalgic reminiscence about "girls in bloom." Written in form of branched quatrains, it deals with the author's "eternal thirst" for a virgin world of thirteen-year-olds in which the fullness of a childhood coming to its end as well as the fullness of various types of love is contained. The poems are poetic collages, e.g. the poem Jeden svet -- jedna budúcnosť, môj svet -- tvoja panny cnosť (One World -- One Future, My World -- Your Virgin Virtue) is a postmodern mosaic of Válek's poems but also a spiritual reference to other Slovak and world poets.
