EMPUSAE: A Chapter from the Hag Movie

The artist, hidden in Mexico, becomes infected with the HAG: he sees her everywhere, two of therm, crouched in doorways, crawling across the floor, always in silken stockings and high heeled shoes, dancing together on a sofa, their legs entwining like snakes....

I decided to do a series of "visual poems." All this seemed to flow together effortlessly. The Hag, I thought, is wearing her amiable mask. I had brought some dresses south with me, and some high heeled shoes and stockings, all of which fit, perfectly, the two actresses. They were quite splendid, the two women, adventurous and beautiful. I still had only my Olympus camera, with its 48-second QuickTime videos. I bought a simple work light, and a 200 watt bulb, an extension cord. We strolled through Jorge's studio, up the stairs, into different rooms, an old sofa, Brenda and Laura in their high heels and stockings and little else, elegantly erotic. The Hag seemed to be all around me....
