The Prayer of the First Astronaut Poet (Rewrite)

Today’s prompt is: “You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?” My answer, as a writer, is that I would most miss an audience, which prompts the below poem.

 The Prayer of the First Astronaut Poet

There is no Wifi in space
and so I send my words
out into the universe
hoping that each syllable
will emit a ray
somehow connected
to all my other syllables,
and if quantum entanglement
is right, they will one day
find each other
again.

(This is a rewrite of a poem I wrote to this prompt three years ago.)

    Fun to think of your words bumping around out there in space.

    But how do you keep your lines together??? Whenever I post a poem,there are spaces between which makes the poem tedious to read and over long to look at.
