‘Lifting The Piano With One Hand’By Gaia Holmes
Published by Comma Press
RRP £7.99 (paperback)
Reviewed by Lynsey Evans
Gaia Holmes’ new collection is quite readable; I found a lot of it was like reading a stream of consciousness, which elegantly flows and makes the theme of loss and hope something special. I love the titles, such as ‘I Turned My Heart into a 2-Star B&B’ or ‘The Man Who Dripped Digitalis’ – they are intriguing and conjure up great imagery. If you like poems that adhere to a strict format, then this isn’t the collection for you. Its free-flowing musings are enchanting and I urge you to give it a read.
Highly recommended for readers aged 14+
