Biography of Slava Olchevski

Slava Olchevski poet

Hello friend.

You will find bits and pieces of my biography throughout my poems. Over a hundred poems cover an unabridged history of my life and deaths. When you read my poetry, hear it with a Russian accent.

Although, I write in English, it is not my native language. It looks like I am following in the footsteps of another Russian - Joseph Brodsky.

Enjoy.

Price Of Wine

When one decides what wine to buy
There is always a better alternative
But students were poor like mice in church
From the beginning of eternity

Only a student would eagerly spend
The last five bucks of his money
To buy a bottle or two for himself
And his beloved honey

[Hata Bildir]
