non sequitur

so if this Polish poet is, according to the first blurb for his book, like Ashbery and Graham and then perhaps (only perhaps) like me,

does that mean I have to read his book, or do I only have to perhaps read it:


 Okay, you're writing a blurb and you put Knott in the same sentence with Ashbery and Graham?

It just seems like some names don't belong in the same sentence together.

Painters Pablo Picasso, Georgia O'Keeffe, Walter Keane.

Actors Marlon Brando, Meryl Streep, Tab Hunter.

Novelists Philip Roth, Margaret Atwood, Erich Segal.

Poets John Ashbery, Jorie Graham, Bill Knott.
