This is just... terribly perfect. There are several specific lines that I love: "The way nine and one and one never seem to add up to enough" probably has to be my favourite, though your description of a magazine as the monster "nested between diet tricks and broken relationships" was pure genius. I almost cried at the ending. And I don't cry anymore. Complete and utter, terrible, brilliance.

You have a lot in here, and you hammer it: image x image x image. And they are so potent, it's almost painful (in a good way). You can actually take any of the images and expand on them in their own poems. I know they all add up to the great whole, and I also know you want me to mention how neat the 911 stanza is. It is wartime, and there is this constant battle inside - not "where do I fit in," but "how does everything else fit around me," because that sense of self is integral in living these scenes, and the urgency of painting them.
I can step back, and go to any of these stanzas on their own, and they wholly exist.
