  thirty
spokes
hold out
the rim of
one wheel
the empty
spaces
in between
make
it light and fast
  mould
clay
into
a bowl--
the hollow
center is
what makes
it useful
doors
and windows
complete
the room
the vacant
air is
what makes
them useful
what
we touch
has
strength
but what
we cannot touch
gives it
value
