beams

This probably means nothing if you haven’t read The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett, but within the context of both the novel itself, and the story-within-the-story that is The Flitcraft Parable, I love these words:

“He adjusted to beams falling, and then no more of them fell, and he adjusted himself to them not falling.”
