Let $\mathcal{E}$ be a rank-2 vector bundle over an elliptic curve $E$, decomposable as a sum of line bundles of degrees $d'>d\ge 2$, and $\mathcal{L}$ the determinant of $\mathcal{E}$. The subspace $L(\mathcal{E})\subset \mathbb{P}^{n-1}\cong \mathbb{P}\mathrm{Ext}^1(\mathcal{L},\mathcal{O}_E)$ consisting of classes of extensions with middle term isomorphic to $\mathcal{E}$ is one of the symplectic leaves of a remarkable Poisson structure on $\mathbb{P}^{n-1}$ defined by Feigin-Odesskii/Polishchuk, and all symplectic leaves arise in this manner, as shown in earlier work that realizes $L(\mathcal{E})$ as the base space of a principal $\mathrm{Aut}(\mathcal{E})$-fibration. Here, we embed $L(\mathcal{E})$ into a larger, projective base space $\widetilde{L}(\mathcal{E})$ of a principal $\mathrm{Aut}(\mathcal{E})$-fibration whose total space consists of sections of $\mathcal{E}$. The embedding realizes $L(\mathcal{E})\subset \widetilde{L}(\mathcal{E})$ as a complement of an anticanonical divisor $Y$ (one of the main results), and we give an explicit description of the normalization of $Y$ as a projective-space bundle over a projective space. For $d=2$ $\widetilde{L}(\mathcal{E})$ is one of the three Hirzebruch surfaces $\Sigma_i$, $i=0,1,2$; we determine which occurs when and hence also the cases when $L(\mathcal{E})$ is affine. Separately, we prove that for $d<\frac n2$ the singular locus of the secant slice $\mathrm{Sec}_{d,z}(E)\subset \mathbb{P}^{n-1}$, the portion of the $d^{th}$ secant variety of $E$ consisting of points lying on spans of $d$-tuples with sum $z\in E$, is precisely $\mathrm{Sec}_{d-2}$. This strengthens result that $L(\mathcal{E})$ is smooth, appearing in prior joint work with R. Kanda and S.P. Smith.
