Stone gullets among       Inrush       Feed         Backsuck and
The borders swallow            Outburst             Huge engorgements       Swallow
In gulps the sea      Tide crams jagged         Smacks snorts chuckups       Follow
       In urgent thirst      Jaws the hollow      Insurge       Hollow
Gushing evacuations follow       Jetty it must       Outpush       Greed
