TAO TE CHING #11

   dan flavin


    
          We join spokes together in a wheel,
          but it is the center hole
          that makes the wagon move.

          We shape clay into a pot,
          but it is the emptiness inside
          that holds whatever we want.

          We hammer wood for a house,
          but it is the inner space
          that makes it livable.

          We work with being,
          but non-being is what we use.
