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!
