Gazing upward to the vast sky, I spot a familiar figure dancing on the dark canvas of the night. Orion the Hunter, protecting the Earth on this cold, winter's night, poses galantly amongst other constellations. His large, star-studded belt is one that many recognize, but what many do not is a small star below this belt - Orion's shlong. I consider this star and its lack of grandeur, questioning why it is not acknowledged along with the rest of the figure. Perhaps it is because it is so tiny, and one must ponder...is his belt compensating for something?
