“I can’t get into poetry”

JESS: I can’t get into poetry. It’s kind of like, geez, just say it already, we’re dying here.

Jess has actually read Allen Ginsberg’s poem Howl more than forty times, so this “I’m too butch for poetry” is nothing but posturing. Maybe he’s trying provoke Rory into saying something, which would reveal to an outsider how they formed an intimate bond over her poetry book. If so, it doesn’t work.
