Two children, a little brother and his young sister, have put on their pyjamas embroidered with musical notes; they are having a pillow fight on the bed they share, their cheeks afire, and they are reeling under the avalanche of their own laughter. ~Gaétan Soucy, The Immaculate Conception, 1994, translated from French by Lazer Lederhendler, 2005
Showers of feathers bring the pillow fight to a suitable finish. The hour is 3 o’clock. Necessary repairs to face and hair are made, and a final gesture toward going to bed.

The party reverberated on… Suddenly, the second-last stage in the purification was upon them all: the boarding-school dormitory pillow-brawl, the university college Walpurgis-night. The moment had arrived everyone had known would arrive — the first arm-chair cushion took the air. ~Hal Porter, “A Handful of Pennies,” 1958
Your lips were tiny pink pillows,
and when we kissed it was like a pillow fight…
the kind you have when you feel completely comfortable
and belonging with another human soul.

We all have periods in our lives when life seems a little too real… That’s when we look to our inner child to rescue us from the burdens of adult existence, if only for an hour or two… Unfortunately, the typical inner child is petrified of loud voices, Mylanta, and severe PMS, and therefore goes into hiding in times of stress. Should this happen to yours, you may need to acquire a dog, whip up some cupcakes, or initiate a pillow fight, since no inner child can resist any of these. ~Nancy Shulins, Every Day I Love You More (Just Not Today), 2001
