chemistry (need asap!)

is it possible for one molecule of salicylic acid to form an ester with a second molecule of the same substance? Use equations and/or structures.
Please help, i am pretty sure it couldn't because of steric hindrance, however i am not sure how to explain this further and what equations/structures would be appropriate!
I couldn't find anything on google for salicyl salicylate.
