Audio of Geoffrey Hill's "Mercian Hymns"?

I am looking for an audio recording of Geoffrey Hill reading his Mercian Hymns. It's proving harder than I thought it would; I guess I am hoping someone has some sort of "inside" academic resources that aren't internet-apparent, or for some other kind of AskMe magic. I would happily pay for said recording.

What is this somewhat dirty poem?

When I was in high school (USA, late 1980's) a friend had a poem (copied from a magazine or a book) taped to the inside of her locker. It was Bukowski-esque, but I do not believe it was Bukowski. The line I recall went something like: "I either want to consume or have sex with everything in existence." Can anyone tell me what that poem was? My Google-fu has failed me, and I'd love to find the poem again (either online or in published form). Thank you!

Going to war with prepositions

John Locke wrote "one may destroy a man who makes war upon him." I understand that in this sentence "one" and "him" are the same person, and "man" and "who" are a separate person. In the most basic sense, this sentence justifies fighting against people who war with you. But I have read sentences before - often in poetry - where cases are switched. If the above sentence were such an example, then "one" and "who" would be a person, and "man" and "him" would be the other person. In this case, the sentence would suggest that one runs the risk of destroying someone if they make war against that someone. What are some examples of such sentences?
