A red spot fell on the floor
in the Guggenheim Museum
someone’s lost cinnamon candy
or a pill to stave off arthritis pain
a red spot on the speckled marble floor
inscribed in circles
a red spot exiled
from one of Kandinsky’s paintings
hanging on the wall
one of Kandinsky’s larger circles
compressed & boiled down
a red pill you take once a day
the Idea of Art alchemized.
