For David

For David LaChapelle
by Julie Pigott

Deep Breath

The last time I saw him
I brought sage and
a feather wrapped in red

I bowed before him
tried to speak

“STOP,” he commanded
“Take a deep breath
and start again.”

So I took a long deep breath
and another
while he waited

“A gift from eagle, left
on the beach for you,”
I spoke, offering the bundle

Nodding in gratitude
trembling hands lifted the
eagle feather

Picked up sacred sage
took a long deep breath
and another

While I waited

-By Julie Mae Pigott

  2. Thanks Tangent Magazine but you're probably referring to the other David LaChapelle who is also a photographer. The David who this blog is for used to joke he and David were alter egos of each other - living out parallel lives for the other... enjoy the interview :)
