This chapter proposes a new way of considering the relation of poetry and political resistance: the interior tensions within the work of major poets (Walt Whitman and Tom Sleigh) are shown to have their own political force, one more vital than those of most typical "political poetry," too often diminished by the positioning of party politics and by cant.

Keywords:   resistance, Walt Whitman, Tom Sleigh, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, Leaves of Grass, Democratic Vistas, Discipline
