The clues on the left give these:

An X:

ACROSS (A cross)

A II:

TWO

A 10:

ANX (An X)


Behind:

DOWN

Not an other:

ONE

Not a head:

BEHIND


Next ...

Roughly preserving the layout, and replacing cardinal numerals with corresponding numbers, we have a proper set of crossword clues for the right side crossword:

  $\small\underline{\text{ACROSS}}$
2. An X
  $\small\underline{\text{DOWN}}$
1. Behind

to which the answers are   ACROSS   and   DOWN   respectively.

which of course makes sense.
Thanks TSL denizens for the right final words, though the reasoning to get there gets a little twisted -

Each group of clues on the left has a clue that is also an answer to a different clue.
  "An X" yields "Across", but is also the answer to "A 10".
  "Behind" yields "Down", but is also the answer to "Not a head".
The final clues, "An X" and "Behind", just give their left-side answers as their right-side answers.
