50 Shades of Pallor

A gatekeeper  
ectodermal of layers  
nonchalantly soft, tender and smooth
Shades of light  
infuse the sublime glow  
masking shadows in concocted diffusion
Once adored and revered  
a sub-particle of a mass macrocosm  
sloughed in expansion of overindulgence
Now on the floor, spewed  
in pallor mortis of a fine cocktail  
dry and shriveled in dismal putrefaction
Detached from rest  
an odorless unrecognizable decay  
remaining organs recoil and shudder
A justifiable indignation  
rotating hands of the clock, counter-  
clockwise.  Will it ever rest on the six?
