Interesting Haiku Challenge

An interesting challenge from ‘Haiku Bombers’ to write Haiku using alternate open and closed syllables. These are defined as:
Closed Syllables: A closed syllable has one and only one vowel, and it ends in a consonant. Examples include in, ask, truck, sock, stretch, twelfth, and on.
Open Syllables: An open syllable has one and only one vowel, and that vowel occurs at the end of the syllable. Examples include no, she, I, a, and spry.

So here goes:

I don’t  mean to pry,
but isn’t that glass your twelfth –
‘piss off’ is the cry

~~~~~~~~

he wanted to ask
what it was that made her cry –
but she’d never tell

 ~~~~~~~

in his silky web,
the spider watched the fly –
almost time for lunch
