found-sound, 11/June/17

the night is made of tiny sounds..... I'm sure you've heard them too...... most will be different while some will be the same as yours.....
you won't be sure...
what all of them are...
any more than me...
some will sound once and no matter how hard you listen won't come around again.... some will repeat... some regular, some random, some at intervals difficult to count....some will be predictable while others elusive often hiding behind others through mimicry or stealth....... some sounds will make new sound on the back of old sounds....... some will be familiar, some not, and sometimes familiar ones can sound
unfamiliar...
no two are ever the same, not once they reach the ears.... they can be precise but never precision...... and where does a sound go once it's sounded... entropy?...... returning to the soundery where they were forged... out of thin air......... to be melted down to make new sound recycled from the old.....
I found this sound lying around, I didn't know its name......

Was the sound found around on the ground by a hound?
