fork knife or spoon?

matching salad fork and spoon server

I am a matching set of large, durable, bourgeois salad fork and spoon,
carved of some sweet-smelling, exotic yet sustainable wood (like mango),
and fond of "mixing things up."

Sometimes my fork-like qualities come to the fore:
stabbing commentary, criticism, ingratitudereminiscent of Lear's line:
"how sharper than a serpent's tooth is an ungrateful child."

Sometimes my spoon-like qualities are in evidence:
the capacity to empathize, nurture, spoonfeed, collect tears.

More often, my fork and spoon qualities--the tendencies to judge and
to sympathize--work together in an integrated fashion and in ways of
which I am not always consciously aware.
