Forests can be treacherous places – unless you’re armed with a good compass. The sorry tale of a young man in the Bavarian Alps inspired my poem ‘Dead Letter Box’ which is out in the latest issue of Other Poetry.
People go missing in these vast European forests and are not always found. This particular young man was discovered fifteen years later by an enthusiastic hiker.
What might YOU do if you found a skeleton next to a well-preserved rucksack and inside, a picture postcard, written, stamped and ready to go?
