Smiley Talks To Güero

“Now we were sitting on the curb at the Dillard’s entrance, under a palm tree, trying to get shade because the sun was coming down gacho. Smiley had this camouflage Zippo lighter he always played with. He could do tricks with it, snap his fingers to turn it on, run it along his pants to open it, run it back to turn it on. He played with his lighter more than he smoked. I think he smoked just so he could play with his Zippo lighter. ‘You should forget about her.’”
