This Has NOTHING To Do With Us!

"An unfamiliar rage was growing in him like algae." 
-- from Bag of Toys by David France
OK, first off, rage does NOT grow like algae.
Algae growing inside a guy would definitely be unfamiliar to most of us, and this line refers to a Naked Ape, not even a fish like Yours Truly.  What human has algae growing inside him?  None, is the answer to THAT question.  Even if that human has already been KILLED and EATEN by hungry fish operatives.
I don't know where these landscum authors get their crazy metaphors, honestly.  In the same paragraph the author says something about feeling "caged in a monologue." 

What does that even mean?
