Phone Call by Tahir Hamut (full text on Words Without Borders) contains the following line:

An intermezzo from the dusky elm’s trunk
fans the spirit lamp into a bonfire

I'm somewhat confused by the first line, though; what is an "intermezzo" in this context, and why is it "from the dusky elm's trunk"?
