Max checked out of reality years ago. When he comes back, he finds himself to be a bum dressed as a priest. He also finds himself to be the only potent man in an otherwise impotent America.
Max eventually reaches the west coast where he finds himself the host of an hour long TV show watched by billions. His adoring fans begin to call him The Poet, and they see him as the savior of the world.
Joined by his triplet lovers, Max sets out to change the world; a world that is more than a little resistant to his efforts. Smothered by his adoring fans, and dogged by men intent on killing him, Max’s multiple personalities fight their own battle in his mind, and no one is sure who will win.
