Chelsea Hotel

Daria Moryakova

I first met Dasha under the alias Chelsea Hotel. I lived next to the real hotel for many years. so I'm immediately enchanted.
She sets a small table at the oversized balcony that wraps around one of Stalin's skyscraper. "There's nothing like sausages and cheese". A bottle of wine pops open. The night begins.
Chelsea is a poet, my daily shot of poetry, actually. Her long and delicately decorated fingers put her tarot subjects in a trance......



"You have it but you can pretend you don't"

I think your life is an illusion, but it’s also a poetry which you write and rewrite over and over again. The dream is repeating. I’m trying to catch a rhythm by the tail like a lizard. Funny thing: when I manage to do it, I will be left with nothing but a shaking tail in my hand.

Be aware of your past but don’t let it rule you. Use your mind like a beautiful weapon but don’t let it hurt you. Watch signs. Remember numbers. Why? Why not? Get on the roller coaster.

I was born here, I moved 6 times, I’ve seen 6 different variations of the city, I’ve lived 6 lives.

Become a character in my movie. Get on the roller coaster. I remember you well.

The cover of my first poetry book is peachy-pink. The color of mother nature is green. It’s all about optics. I like to see things through pink and green. Do you?
