anything to expidite my parachutte blues

PROMPT 13: A man has a terrifying dream in which he is being sawn in half. He wakes to find himself in the Indian Ocean, naked and clinging to a door; a hotel keycard is clenched in his teeth. Write what happens next.

Leonardo DiCaprio is watching from above,
cooing commands in his boy-wonderful voice
like an angel with strange hair.

the dessert wasn't as warm as he expected
but the water is nice and the air is dry
the fish are red and the turtles swim below the surface.

like Leo said it would, the door unlocks
when he tries the key but he doesn't want to go through it.
the key says Marriot... he thinks... they have those?

no one knows what's happening to him, not even Leo,
who recommends he lay off the magic for a while
hang up his cape and take up a new hobby

like fishing. now would be a great time to start fishing.
