' waiting for habagat ' southwest monsoon wind. cesar conde filipino american gay artist chicago
' waiting for habagat "
technique mixte
72'w x 36"h

she will wait for southwest monsoon winds to come
he will have ten toes and fingers
he will be born here in America
but her mother will sing him songs
from the mountains where snow does not meet
the palm trees
where leaves don't turn to gold in the fall,
rather bearing fruit sweeter than a first kiss

habagat will bear the curse of that who belong to two continents
through his mother's songs,
he will know his history
......through HER story
