NaPoWriMo 2019 + A Poem A Day 2019 #7 & #12: Proper Etiquette for Loving a Spoon

Is there proper etiquette to convey
The love for the spoon if I may
Without a good spoon
You could cook midnight to noon
And wind up with soup loathsome and gray


I'm not one of those poets who can just write a poem and then leave the readers to figure it out for themselves. That is not how I roll.
The NaPoWriMo prompt asked for a poem praising a dull object. The spoon is both blunt and not exactly exciting. However, one must admit that life would suck without spoons.
The Real Toads Prompt #7 was the word etiquette.
The Real Toads Prompt #12 was the concept of love. Probably romantic love, but I'm going to get technical here and argue for the fact that I mention the word love in reference to the dull but necessary spoon.
For those of you who think that I'm a one-trick pony who only writes dark poetry, you now know that I'm a two-trick pony. I write two kinds of poems: dark and silly. I leave you to discern which category this one should be placed in.
