But an anagram is a letter jumble; that's not what he was asking for I don't think.

No it's not. An anagram is a "picture" or other graphical depiction of a word or phrase using letters, words, or images.

No it's not.

Yes. It should be fitted by someone who knows what she's doing. one size does not fit all.

Are you talking about something like this?



Edgar Allan Poe

Eerie stories and poems
Decorate our imagination. Both
Good and evil
Are challanged along with
Reality.

Also,
Love and insanity
Lurk through the pages and
Anthologies. You will
Never know what is to happen next.

Problems of murder and mystery,
Oddities and wonderment are
Expressed with such peculiarity only he could acheive.

I'm pretty sure it is.

I was starting to think you were just fucking with me. LMAO!


ETA: I see now; the fact that the word is written 'down' makes it DRAW (what is written) DOWN (the direction it's written).

That's the closest. The definition says symbols or pictures. I guess if you substitute letters for symbols in the definition, it's correct.
