The following is Karen Jo Shapiro's poem, "Me."

.........
........
.......
So many kinds of folks I see,
but only I can be a ME.
==================================
(Question)

Would you explain 'So many kinds of folks I see'?

1. So many kinds of folks (that)I see.
---the relative pronoun 'that' is omitted.

2. So many kinds of folks I see.
----- I see so many kinds of folks.
'So many kinds of folks' is the object of 'see.' The object is placed in front. So 'that' is not omitted between 'folks' and "I."

(Which explanation is right?)

  • English -

    I can't tell from this. I need to see the entire poem. Please post all of it, not just two lines.
