Chicagoetry: Smilin' Dave Eigenberg

Smilin' Dave Eigenberg

Even Sex
in the City
men

have to be
high-school

freshman
at some point.

My senior year
at Naperville Central,

I finally bagged -
wait -

OK, nearly
bagged

my
dream

sophomore
chick.

I was ruthlessly exercising
Senior

Protocol, every
damn

one of
them.

My dream
was about to be

mine
when Smilin'

Dave Eigenberg,
FRESHMAN, came gayfully

strolling up
the sidewalk . . .

and my dream
ended. Good one, Dave.

Some years
later, pre-Sex

but post-Dennis
Rodman ensemble war movie,

I run into
a

chick at
a

party who still
knew this

woman.
"Wish I'da married

a man like
David! Wish I'da

married a man
like

DAVID . . . " Yeah,
me, too.
