Sure--it's the "toplevel" widget. Using STklos:

  (require "Toplevel")
  (define tl (make <Toplevel>))
  (define t (make <Text> :parent tl))
  (pack t)

or using plain STk:

  (toplevel '.my-window)
  (text '.my-window.text)
  (pack .mywindow.text)

(The text widgets, obviously, aren't necessary--just there to make it
more obvious that the toplevel is there.)
