Measured in spoons

TS Eliot wrote famously that he measured his life out in coffee spoons.
I’m sure this led to him being late to a lot of important meetings, crucial appointments, and dinner dates.
How do you measure time in coffee spoons?
Maybe he stuck the spoon in the ground and used it like a sundial.
Or he threatened passers-by with his spoons and demanded to know the time.
WHAT TIME IS IT?
WHAT DAY IS IT?
Now that I think of it, a man who threatens others with spoons isn’t very likely to get asked to all that many dinner dates.
