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.

Rats.

Through the act of amazing Grace
I quit running in a rat race

Believe me, please! Don’t get me wrong
I am still a rat, the rat I was born

Like father, like son I have the same scent
Eyes, whiskers and tail all one hundred percent
