your father’s corpse

as Pound put it:
We are all Futurists to the extent of believing with Guillaume Appolinaire that
“On ne peut pas porter partout avec soi le cadavre de son pere”
(Gaudier-Brzeska, p. 94),
they did not agree with futuristic preoccupation with men and machines.

<You can’t carry your father’s corpse everywhere with you>
