Ages ago

and young,
you were Orion
in my firmament.
But now, in a different 
galaxy,
the sky has strange comets.
Yowza!

This is superb.
Hey busker,

Orion is signified by three prominent, fixed stars and comets are "visitors".

Perhaps it's that your view of a steadfast person in your younger life now includes strange visitors in your older, "different galaxy". Or not. That's how I read it, although I may be seeing it from a parallel universe.

Thanks for this one, as it got me thinking beyond the space between my ears-
Mark
Thanks, Mark, TqB
Mark - your interpretation is close what I had intended, although the association of comets with doom and death are also there, not intentionally, but just the way it came out
