Several of the sites/blogs I frequent regularly for intelligent and thought provoking reading, feature poetry on a regular basis, and the poetry tends to be topical and hard to dismiss. 3Quarks Daily and Andrew Sullivan's The Dish are but two.
This, from 3Quarks Daily, is just one example:
A Good Poet's Boots
by Jim Culleny
a good poet's subversive
—not to the point of blood in the streets
but to the point of burrowing beneath
his garden of conceits like an insistent vole
and killing those weeds at their roots
everyone in this way
can walk in a good poet’s boots
