# Reference an inline orb within an inline orb

I can’t seem to get the syntax to reference an inline orb from within an inline orb. Is this a bug/lack of functionality, or just poorly documented?

``````orbs:
my-orb:
description:  an inline orb
orbs:
go: circleci/go@0.2.0
alt-orb: alternative-orb

alternative-orb:
description:  an alternative inline orb
...
``````

Orbs are a closed scope, so you can’t reference an inline orb in this way.
