Black Horse [Poem from the Yet Unpublished Book of Verses]

Black Horse
Black horse in golden chains
in the middle of the main square lies
townsmen strike him with poisonous arrows
pierce his chest and loins
till he drew his last breath

After the ritual sacrifice,
townsmen hypnotically worshipped
the black body in golden chains
left lying on the square.
As if conquered at last,
he lied still 
his body started to decay,
glassy stare pointed
to the translucent eye of blue.

Three days later, the plague devastated the town.
