An interactive kinetic sculpture that viewers are invited to enter and exit. They may entrust their entrapment and release to a partner via the crank mechanism. The conical ribcage like form is lined in fluorescent epoxy casts of the mouths from the sculpture A Block and Tackle of Lures, Reels, and Rods.The title references a line from Andrew Marvel’s poem, To His Coy Mistress:
The grave’s a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace.
