Poem: Interior (After Degas)

I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art yesterday and came across this painting by Edgar Degas, Interior.  I tend to associate Degas with his paintings of ballet dancers, so this violent, heartbreaking scene was especially poignant.

I wrote the following poem, “Interior (After Degas),” to process it.
