These two possibilities hang together, neither erasing the other - "wood", which has a kind of drifting solidity, both expected and unexpected; "a piece of metal", which again suggests distribution, individuation; "outside a bottle", which could refer to the metal being outside a bottle, or that there's only the outside of the bottle visible - its opaque? - or again this could be a more diffuse kind of image, a kind of reminder that is more about how we always experience things, describe things, and say things, "outside of" other things.
