When Richard O. Moore's first volume of poetry, "Writing the Silences", was published in 2010, he had just celebrated his 90th birthday. In the same year, the author met him for the first time: He was a contemporary witness of the literary movement of the San Francisco Renaissance in the 1940s. "I'll be the last," said Richard O. Moore, astonished.
Martina Groß visited him again and again. It documents his regression, he used to say. He read her poems he was writing, talked about anarchism, pacifism and the break-in of Ginsberg & Co. in the San Francisco Bay and the consequences. Even when he went almost completely blind in 2013, he remained what he always was: Curious about new experiences, including the last one: dying.
Until the day of his death, March 25, 2015, he worked with the poet collective, consisting of his six children and a few young West Coast poets.
