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.

On Obama's Inauguration

Blacks and whites were mixed together
On the Mall today
Joyous, crying, jubilating
Almost swept away

Something special has happened
When black incumbent
Won American election
For a president.
