Del’s Italian Bar and Restaurant in Pittsburgh’s "Little Italy" has karaoke every Friday night.

All week long he does breathing and stretching exercises

In his aparment

The mike, mike stand, two large speakers and a four channel power mixer sit in his living room

An altar to his youth

On Friday nights

He shaves his face

He shaves his head

As he hums the words in the shower

The years melt away 

He dons a long sleeve black jersey

Well washed torn bluejeans

And polished black boots…

And when the music begins

A black bandanna now around his head

The audience in the bar waits

He raises the cordless mike

He opens his mouth

Lets the music take possession of his body

So that he and the audience transcend space and time

And the writer becomes a star

The End

Sex Videos is a flash fiction story.
