The story “Fish Cheeks”was made by Amy Tan, and this story was about a girl being ashamed of her own tradition, and thinking that she was getting embarrassed by her own parents  when her crush came to the Christmas eve dinner.

My poem shows the concept of the story because it shows how Amy felt at the time of the dinner, and how she felt after as well. It strongly suggests what she things about her tradition, and what she think would be better for her liking. My poem also shows that the conflict is man vs man and in this case man vs society and man vs family because tradition is something you cannot change and it is within the family of Amy and the family of Minister.
