My "is's" are dangling on purpose, otherwise, have at it!

Dissolution / Doubts

I assumed there was more to them.

More substance, a concretion.

Those buildings go down so fast, don't they? And what a picture, personal death by implosion. Ouch.

Is there anything that you are doubting? I find nothing lacking attention at all.

My faves: the ancient cat
no more concerned
with our presence than global financing
and of course, the red eared 10 year old
Embrace change.

Brilliant work, Pat, right from the opening line. Love the word "concretion". And yes, the ancient cat. Yes, the global financing, the rescue squad and the red-eared 10-year-old. No crit. Only applause.

I love this, particularly

Not my cat. I always know what MY cat is thinking. ;

Pat, so many good lines in this, but the one I really like is --cracks appear on load-bearing walls.
