The Monster
By: Jim Bates

Stay away from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It's south of Guam and roughly three times the size of France. It's bounded by an enormous spinning gyre of ocean currents that pull sea trash to the center creating an immense garbage vortex. That's just fine for the monster that lives there. Its hulking mass grows more immense every day as it feeds on the refuge of humanity, mostly plastic. One wonders what will happen when it has eaten its fill and ventures out into the greater ocean. If it develops a taste for cruise ships, things could get ugly. Fast.
