DUST - what a wonderful word! A gentle susurration with biblical/Shakespearean echoes. Reminds me of His Dark Materials, and now - those funny fat-fighters in Little Britain. It's a great word because it can mean one thing and then it can mean its opposite.

If only raised and razed were spelt the same way .... "they raised a mighty edifice, and then razed it to the ground" - that wouldn't just sound great, it would look great too.
