A rare, tiny, shiny thing
when out at dinner trying your hand at adulting.
Those soup spoons and dessertspoons,
tablespoons and long handled ice cream spoons
just don’t feel right.
Maybe you can ask for a teaspoon
without being snorted at all night.
And what’s with these odd fancy handles, when
normal metal cutlery is perfectly alright?
Plastic, wood, swirly-intricate designs –
they just don’t feel right.
