For Mr. Opp, it must be confessed, was given to violent intoxication, not from an extraneous source, but from too liberal draughts of his own imagination.

Tragedy we found

Extraneous and not meritorious
Tragedy we found here.
Tiger tamed tactically
At times it create havoc
And the tiger know how to
weave a web to trap master.

Advertising is the art of the tiny. You have to tell a complete a story and deliver a complete message in a very encapsulated form. It disciplines you to cut away extraneous information.

What's really important is to simplify. The work of most photographers would be improved immensely if they could do one thing: get rid of the extraneous. If you strive for simplicity, you are more likely to reach the viewer.

Human memory is a marvelous but fallacious instrument. The memories which lie within us are not carved in stone; not only do they tend to become erased as the years go by, but often they change, or even increase by incorporating extraneous features.

The Parable Of The Blind

This horrible but superb painting
the parable of the blind
without a red

in the composition shows a group
of beggars leading
each other diagonally downward

across the canvas
from one side
to stumble finally into a bog

where the picture
and the composition ends back
of which no seeing man

is represented the unshaven
features of the des-
titute with their few

Antonio Gramsci

In the life of children there are two very clear-cut phases, before and after puberty. Before puberty the child's personality has not yet formed and it is easier to guide its life and make it acquire specific habits of order, discipline, and work after puberty the personality develops impetuously and all extraneous intervention becomes odious, tyrannical, insufferable. Now it so happens that parents feel the responsibility towards their children precisely during this second period, when it is too late then of course the stick and violence enter the scene and yield very few results indeed. Why not instead take an interest in the child during the first period

Illustrious Ancestors

The Rav
of Northern White Russia declined,
in his youth, to learn the
language of birds, because
the extraneous did not interest him; nevertheless
when he grew old it was found
he understood them anyway, having
listened well, and as it is said, 'prayed
          with the bench and the floor.' He used
what was at hand--as did
Angel Jones of Mold, whose meditations
were sewn into coats and britches.
          Well, I would like to make,
thinking some line still taut between me and them,
poems direct as what the birds said,
hard as a floor, sound as a bench,
mysterious as the silence when the tailor
would pause with his needle in the air.

Break of bleakness

Whilst winter remains ensconced
You break bleakness over coldness embers
Fires stoke to orange and coax blues warm
to remember, bearing revitalisation

Throughout spring footsteps bounce, flowers
trigger pollens prate carried over breezes to rest
... only long enough to felicitate summer’s arrival
whilst we cool immersed in enriched waters babble

which whisper in its trickles, reassurance that..
you are my sacred, unfettered to any pulpit
you burnish away danger, block extraneous interference
for triumphant to engulf, you shed all in honesty,
confident as each autumnal knowing of when to renew,
gently
f
all

you are the leaves of every colour, my break of bleakness
