That’s wormwood.

A piece of wood, made a meal of by a worm, or a family of worms, will retain its shape, will still seem to be a piece of wood. But the worms, in their feeding, will leave behind a void. Where there was wood, there will be air.
Where all was solid, will now be dotted with space.
A piece of wormwood is destined to break. Something solid becomes fragile and the slightest pressure will crack it into holey pieces.
That’s wormwood.
