by David S. Pointer


interferes with
                       the absence
                        of insightful dialogue
                       transmitted to people

interferes with
                       the preference
                         for high level privacy
                       during economic piracy

interferes with
                        the low pay repositories
                         the free people usability continuum
                        the lifecycle curiosity extraction

interferes with
                       the data purge
                         of financial, medical
                       and chemical information

interferes with
                       the myth, beauty, trivia
                        poetry professors pretending
                       they are above the fray

interferes with
                      the myth of the great man
                       the domestic assassination
                      the international assassination

interferes with
                      the diversionary entertainment
                       the familial and world peace
                      the quiet green horizons to come
