The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock as a Interior-Dramatic Monologue would have to include a discussion on the topics that he covers. The narrator ruminates about his life, his choices (good and bad) and the women he has known.

“And time yet for a hundred indecisions, / And for a hundred visions and revisions, / Before the taking of toast and tea.”

This type of inner reflection lends itself to the dramatic monologue as he's clearly trying to make sense of his life as well as come to some sort of conclusion about where he wants to go from here.
